Clean Currents coming to Atlanta in 2021

With an eye towards 2021, the US’s National Hydropower Association has announced the creation of Clean Currents, a new industry-led tradeshow and conference that will bring all waterpower technologies together – conventional hydropower, pumped storage, small hydro, and marine energy.
Clean Currents 2021, which will be held from 20-22 October at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, marks the evolution and growth of the waterpower industry. For the first time, NHA, the industry’s trade association since 1983, is going to own and operate its own tradeshow and conference to bring together the full array of waterpower technology companies, including utility generators, public power providers, equipment manufacturers, and engineering and technical consultants, in one conference that supports the entire US hydropower energy industry.
“Waterpower is an essential part of a flexible, carbon-free electricity grid, and Clean Currents 2021 will serve as a hub for our industry to move waterpower technologies forward,” said Malcolm Woolf, NHA’s president and CEO. “Clean Currents 2021 will represent every sector of the waterpower industry, and we are pleased to have the early support and backing of traditional hydropower generators, pumped storage operators, small hydropower developers, and cutting-edge marine energy start-ups.”
