The National Hydropower Association (NHA) and the Midwest Hydro Users Group (MHUG) are jointly holding the 2022 Midwest Regional Meeting in St. Louis, Missouri, May 10 – 11. Ameren is the host utility. Nearly 20 companies are sponsoring the event.
The meeting – open to anyone working in or with the industry, especially in the midwestern section of the U.S. –promises high-caliber content, networking opportunities, and a tour of Ameren’s Taum Sauk pumped storage facility. If you attend, you’ll be joined by a mix of representatives, such as: asset owners, project developers, technology developers, consultants, and service and product suppliers.
NHA’s regional meeting series are important because we understand that not everyone can attend our national events, says Diane Lear, NHA’s vice president of operations and member services. In order to reach more people, as well as provide opportunities for individuals working in the Midwest to connect with one another, we strive to provide annual forums across the U.S. in order to address regional issues and location-specific challenges, Lear says.
Examples of the session topics being covered during the Midwest Regional Meeting are:
- Aging Hydro Infrastructure – Repair, Replace, or Add New
- Dam Safety and FERC Part 12: Strategies for Midwest Owner/Operators and Consultants to Adapt to Changes
- Infrastructure and Jobs Investment Act: How can Midwest Hydropower Benefit?
