The EU Horizon2020 project Fishfriendly Innovative Technologies for Hydropower (FIThydro) investigates cost effective environmentally friendly solutions and mitigation measures for improving fish protection in hydropower plant affected rivers. FIThydro develops decision support tools for the planning, commissioning and operation of hydropower plants, using existing and innovative technologies. Within the project, 26 partners from science and industry across Europe are working together to find the best solutions for different hydropower scenarios and support an ecologically friendly electricity production. Solutions, methods, tools and devices are tested or applied and evaluated at 17 test cases, each with different HPP set-ups and different challenges, in four test case regions in Europe: Alpine region, Scandinavia, France/Belgium, Iberian Peninsula. Scenario modelling in the four different geographic, climatic and topographic test case regions will allow the quantification of effects and resulting costs for different mitigation options in Europe.
The project results are published in form of deliverables, reports and scientific articles, which are accessible here. Additionally, published research data from the project can be found here.
