Supporting hydropower operations with MIKE technologies

Hydropower – the conversion of energy from flowing water into electricity – is the leading renewable source for electricity generation today.

According to the World Energy Council, hydropower supplies 71% of all renewable electricity in the market. As expected, many countries worldwide are recognising an increasing demand for services supporting the hydropower industry.

Accurate forecasts of river runoff, reservoir inflow and hydropower production are a top priority for dam operators, energy traders and regulators.

Using MIKE Powered by DHI technologies, we have developed robust platforms running 24/7 to help hydropower market operators in their short- and long-term forecast.

The challenges we address include – but are not limited to:

  • Power production optimisation,
  • Management of floods as other critical events
  • Higher revenues in the energy stock market
  • Long-term planning
