Moving water has great potential for energy production. All around the globe, water energy can be assimilated, not only in the traditional way with dams, but in the form of waves, tides, river and ocean currents, etc.

The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences and the European Academies Science Advisory Council (EASAC) are hosting an international symposium in Stockholm, Sweden on 12 November 2007 to explore the potential and challenges of energy from moving water. Present technologies and future prospects will be discussed against the background of the prevailing policy context at national, EU- and international levels. The symposium contains four sessions:

  • Session 1  The policy context
  • Session 2  Current and emerging technologies and future prospects
  • Session 3  Constraints and opportunities
  • Session 4  Panel discussion and debate
