Highlights on the  2017 agenda

Our comprehensive agenda covered in 2017 all the different aspects of a small hydro project to give you a broad overview of the different challenges and opportunities. Among those topics, some were particularly important:

  • Social issues: Nestor Gutierrez Mejía from Proeléctrica and Camilo Ruiz Morales from Vatia both presented case studies on how to deal with social issues and so facilitate the development of your projects
  • Small Hydro Funding: through roundtables on how to attract investors hosted by Alejandro Paz from MGM Innova Capital and a presentation from Daniel Petrie from HBI Helm Banca de Inversión, we explore how to find more easily investors and funding for your projects.
  • Environmental issues: Enrique Herrera from Aluz Clean Energy and Ana Herrera Romero from Gen+ both presented on how to mitigate the impact of a small hydro Project on the environment. Gen+ also highlighted the difficulty to have environmental license and how to facilitate the compliance of your small hydro projects. 
  • Opportunities in LATAM: One of the key moment of the conference was a panel discussion that gathered 5 experts of the small hydro industry from Mexico, Chile, Argentina, Panama and Colombia to explore where is small hydro developing according to the regulations or facilities of investments.
