Workshop on Advancing the Discussion of Hydropower Workforce Development: Identifying Industry Priorities

10 a.m.–12 p.m. PT, Oct. 18, 2022, Sacramento, California

During the National Hydropower Association’s Clean Currents 2022, the U.S. Department of Energy’s Water Power Technologies Office, National Renewable Energy Laboratory, and Hydropower Foundation will co-host an in-person forum to discuss how industry can help address urgent hydropower workforce needs. Experts from industry and the national labs will facilitate discussions to determine next steps and identify partnerships for current and future workforce efforts. The workshop will also identify a framework for knowledge transfer and succession planning to prepare the industry for a new wave of workers.

Registration for the Clean Currents conference is not required but strongly recommended.
