WATERPOWER Week in Washington


Event Overview:

NHA Annual Conference Event Information

Join industry leaders, state and federal regulatory officials, and key legislative staff to discuss technology, policy and future development options for the hydropower industry at the National Hydropower Association (NHA) Annual Conference.

• Build relationships with policy makers
• Connect with Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) staff on regulatory and compliance issues
• Gain the latest insight on how new projects are moving forward
• Learn about innovative and high quality work going on throughout the industry
• Share operations and maintenance (O&M) best practices supporting operational excellence
• Visit with agencies and collect valuable information

International Marine Renewable Energy Conference (IMREC) Event information

IMREC is an important and unique event to bring together individuals interested in marine energy to share challenges, find solutions, and continue to move this industry forward. IMREC is especially important this year since both the Global Marine Renewable Energy Conference (GMREC) event and the Energy Ocean event are NOT being held.

Topics being discussed at the IMREC event include:
    Financing instruments and U.S. Federal R&D funding
    Best management practices
    Global regulatory developments regarding marine renewable energy
    U.S. and international marine energy projects
    Environmental monitoring
    Design tools
    Testing infrastructure
    Offshore safety and construction
    Evolving technology trends and markets
    Wave and water current energy research

This conference is being presented by the newly formed National Hydropower Association Marine Energy Council - or MEC. Most members of the Council transitioned from the Ocean Renewable Energy Coalition (OREC), which ceased operations in January 2015.

The National Hydropower Association (NHA) is the official trade association for hydropower in the United States. By forming a council focused on Marine Energy, NHA is bringing the conventional and marine energy industries together under one roof.

NHA and members of the MEC believe this "under one roof" concept provides benefits to both industries as we collectively advocate the importance of all hydropower technologies as solutions to energy challenges.

Marine Energy Technology Symposium (METS) Event Information

The main objective of the Marine Energy Technology Symposium (METS) is to provide a venue where technical experts can publish and present wave and water current energy research that helps accelerate the pace of Marine Energy technology development.

2017 marks the 5th annual METS and the second time METS has been held in conjunction with the International Marine Energy Conference (IMREC) and the National Hydropower Association (NHA) Annual Conference, which focus on non-technical policy, regulatory, and economic topics. Holding METS in conjunction with the IMREC and NHA conferences provides researchers with the invaluable opportunity to interact with public and private industry stakeholders.

Exhibitor Information:

In addition to sponsorship opportunities, we are offering Table Top displays in the main foyer area.  The Table Tops are located in the Capital Terrace main walkway between the session rooms, coffee service and registration.  Each Table Top display includes a 6-foot skirted table for you to display your materials.

Increase your company's presence and elevate your message to key hydro and marine industry professionals.  All attendees are welcome to visit the Table Tops during Waterpower Week in Washington to learn more about your company's products and services.

Reservations are on a first-come, first-serve basis and spaces are limited.
