Brochure

The stunning city of Seville in the autonomous community of Andalusia, southern Spain, will provide an ideal setting for the HYDRO 2017 International Conference and Exhibition.

Delegates will engage in discussions on all topical issues relating to hydropower, with emphasis on international collaboration: working together in project planning and implementation to shape the future of world hydropower development.

The Aqua~Media team is delighted to be bringing the annual hydropower conference back to Spain, following successful events in Barcelona (1995), Granada (2007) and Bilbao (2012).

Spain has been, and continues to be, among Europe’s leading countries for water resources development, hydropower and pumped storage. Unevenly distributed water resources, with southern areas suffering severe droughts, led the country to develop a comprehensive water management strategy and in particular a National Hydrological Plan.

The country’s history of dam construction dates back to the second century of the Christian era, with several Roman dams still in operation for water supply, such as Prosperina and Cornalvo.

Today there are 1082 large dams in operation, by ICOLD’s definition, providing a total storage capacity of 56.5 km3. About 20 per cent of the dams have hydro production as there sole purpose, and a further 12 per cent are multipurpose, with hydro production as one of the functions.

Spain’s installed hydro capacity currently stands at 19.6 GW, which represents 18 per cent of the total. Among the major Spanish hydro plants are Aldeadavila (1139 MW, see photo above right) and Alcantara (915 MW). The largest of the country’s 25 pumped storage plants is Cortes-La Muela (1720 MW). Hydro produces around 43 TWh/year, which is about 17 per cent of total production. Spain is a major developer of other renewable sources of energy, particularly wind and solar power.

The Spanish Government, principal utilities and industry warmly welcome the world hydro community to Seville, where there will be a chance to learn about Spanish past and present water resources development, and to visit some of the most important hydro and pumped-storage installations.
