  • Register 2016 NHA Waterpower Week in Washington April 25-27, 2016, Washington, DC

    The all-new Waterpower Week in Washington will present three events under one roof showcasing the entire world of waterpower. Make plans to attend these dynamic events: National Hydropower Association Annual Conference, International Marine Renewable Energy Conference and Marine Energy Technology Symposium taking place at the Capital Hilton in Washington, D.C., April 25-27, 2016.

    For more information, please visit our Waterpower Week in Washington website.

  • Register 2016 NHA International Marine Renewable Energy Conference (IMREC) April 25-27, 2016, Washington, DC

    IMREC is an important and unique event to bring together individuals interested in marine energy to share challenges, find solutions, and continue to move this industry forward. IMREC is especially important this year since both the Global Marine Renewable Energy Conference (GMREC) event and the Energy Ocean event are NOT being held.

    Past topics discussed at the IMREC event include:

    • Financing instruments and U.S. Federal R&D funding
    • Best management practices
    • Global regulatory developments regarding marine renewable energy
    • U.S. and international marine energy projects
    • Environmental monitoring
    • Design tools
    • Testing infrastructure
    • Offshore safety and construction
    • Evolving technology trends and markets
    • Wave and water current energy research

    This conference is being presented by the newly formed National Hydropower Association Marine Energy Council – or MEC. Most members of the Council transitioned from the Ocean Renewable Energy Coalition (OREC), which ceased operations in January 2015.

    The National Hydropower Association (NHA) is the official trade association for hydropower in the United States. By forming a council focused on Marine Energy, NHA is bringing the conventional and marine energy industries together under one roof.

    NHA and members of the MEC believe this “under one roof” concept provides benefits to both industries as we collectively advocate the importance of all hydropower technologies as solutions to energy challenges.

    For more information, please visit our Waterpower Week in Washington website.

  • Register 2016 NHA Marine Energy Technology Symposium (METS) April 25-27, 2016, Washington, DC

    With content developed from technical papers, METS provides a venue where academic and industry experts will present marine energy research activities that are supporting technology development, testing, and environmental monitoring.

    It’s important to reiterate that the upcoming IMREC and METS events are the only marine energy events occurring in the United States in 2016 officially supported by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).

    Why are these events being co-located with the National Hydropower Association Annual Conference in Washington, D.C.?

    NHA has a strong annual conference each year, attracting nearly 600 attendees. Many of these attendees represent companies who either work in or are interested in learning about generating electricity using the kinetic power in waves, tides, and streamflows.

    From the most important regulatory and policy issues, as well as technological advancements, development and opportunities for growth in generation and stable distribution of electricity, co-locating the events in the nation’s capitol provides industry publicity and access to policy-makers as we collectively promote using water in all its forms to generate electricity.
