The HydroVision International 2013 event features an entire seven-session panel presentation track covering the ocean/tidal/stream power market.

As the largest hydroelectric event in the world, HydroVision International will be attended by more than 2,600 hydro industry professionals. The event is being held July 23-26 in Denver, Colo.

This year’s ocean/tidal/stream track is designed to provide a wealth of educational content to registrants, including the mechanics, current development and challenges in the fields of wave, tidal and hydrokinetic energy. In the  session that kicks off the three-day program, expert panelists and moderators will offer solutions and suggestions to advance the industry, while answering audience questions.

“There will be no question too simple, and this session will provide a perfect opportunity for people in the hydro industry to learn more about all aspects of wave and tidal,” says Tim Mundon, senior engineer at Kleinschmidt Associates and co-track chair for the Ocean/Tidal Stream track.

The seven sessions are:

-- All about Wave, Tidal and In-Stream Hydrokinetics;

-- The Pathway to a Mature Marine Hydrokinetics Industry;

-- Coastal Grid Connection: Challenges for Marine Projects?;

-- Technology and Project Status: Tidal and In-Stream;

-- Wave Energy Technology and Project Status;

-- Opportunities and Constraints for Small and Rural Applications; and

-- All Things Environmental: Review, Compliance and Resources.

Each of the sessions combines solid content with perspective from industry experts such as Jason Busch, executive director of the Oregon Wave Energy Trust, and Robert Thresher, research fellow at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, who will speak on wave and tidal energy, respectively.

In addition to a rich program of content, the HydroVision International event features an exhibit hall with more than 320 companies doing work in the hydroelectric market.
