Innovative solutions and new tools for fish-friendly hydropower
Hydropower is an important renewable energy source, but often with adverse impacts on hydro-morphology and
aquatic ecosystems. Under legislations, such as the Water Framework Directive, many hydropower plants in Europe
will need to be refurbished or upgraded in the coming years to mitigate these impacts. The FIThydro project aims
to find innovative methods, tools and solutions to safeguard fish populations and maintain electricity production in
hydropower affected rivers.
