HyPeak webinar “Sustainable Hydropeaking Management”
The HyPeak research network is organising a webinar series around the topic of hydropeaking. The webinars will take place every second month to share relevant knowledge about hydropeaking issues and foster knowledge exchange and discussions. Attendance is free of charge.
Registration: Please register here at least one day before the webinar. (if you cannot register via the Google form, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org)
The zoom-link to the webinar will be shared with you after your registration.
The 2nd webinar of this series will take place on 30 March 2022, 17:00 – 18:00 CEST.
The HyPeak network has been created to enrich international research initiatives and support hydropower planning and policy. In this webinar, discussions about emerging best management practise regarding hydropeaking mitigation in line with European policy guidelines are initiated.

Further webinar dates
8th June 2022, 17:00 – 18:00 (CEST) – “Effects of Hydropeaking on bio-physical Processes”
The HyPeak research network was established in 2020 to encourage integrated interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary knowledge to address the complex challenges of hydropeaking in a changing world with an increasing flexible energy demand. Hydro4U partner BOKU is a member of this network.
HyPeak’s vision is to bring together a reference group of experts to support evidence-based legislation at different levels (from national to international) and to enhance the value of the interaction between hydropeaking research and policy.
