Waterpower Week is here again. Join the Water Power Technologies Office (WPTO) and the national laboratories at Waterpower Week in Washington. Comprised of three co-located conferences rolled into one—NHA's Annual Conference, International Marine Renewable Energy Conference, and Marine Energy Technology Symposium—water power professionals can network and discuss the future sustainability of the hydropower and marine energy industries.
From April 30–May 2, attend sessions with Energy Department speakers and panelists and national laboratory workshops. More than 30 presentations and posters by WPTO staff, national laboratories, and WPTO funding awardees will be presented over the course of the week. Also, be sure to stop by tables 26 and 27 for additional WPTO and national laboratory resources. We hope to see you there!
