The National Hydropower Association’s Clean Currents tradeshow + conference originated from in-depth industry listening sessions with our members in 2019. The waterpower community and NHA decided it was time to develop a bold, new event dedicated to the advancement of conventional hydropower, pumped storage, small hydro, and marine energy as reliable and flexible sources of clean energy—an event that, by virtue of being owned and produced by NHA, would reflect industry needs and benefit the industry through reinvestment of proceeds to advance waterpower.
Despite the challenges of launching an all-new event in the midst of a global pandemic, Clean Currents 2021 was held in the fall of 2021 in Atlanta, Georgia. Attendance exceeded expectations, and the event was a success—99% of surveyed attendees agreed that Clean Currents 2021 proved to be a valuable experience. Clean Currents 2022 will take this unique experience to the West Coast and promises to build on the success of 2021!
