(Increasing the value of Hydropower through increased Flexibility)

What we do

The HydroFlex project aims to develop new technology permitting highly flexible operation of hydropower stations. Flexibility of operation here means large ramping rates, frequent start-stops and possibilities to provide a large range of system services. All this within (strict) excellent environmental and social conditions while being economically competitive compared to alternative solutions.

Flexibility is a requirement inherent in all power systems. In recent years, there has been an increasing focus on how to manage flexibility.

The HydroFlex project aims towards scientific and technological breakthroughs to enable hydropower to operate with very high flexibility.

To meet the objectives of the HydroFlex project, the research and innovation activities are structured in seven work packages.
