“Assessment of HYDROpower POTential of Turkey/Greece and
Romania Using Innovative IT Approach” (HYDROPOT)
In collaboration with a number of universities,
electricity distribution and trading companies and energy associations,
ERE proposed a Specific Targeted Research Project (STREP) titled
“Assessment of Hydropower Potential of Turkey/Greece and Romania Using
Innovative IT approach (HYDROPOT) to EU within Sixth Framework Programme
Project was proposed in the thematic priority area of
'Aeronautics and Space', 'Sustainable energy systems' and 'Sustainable
surface transport' under the Call FP6-2004-TREN-3 on 8th December 2004.
The consortium of the project consists of a number of participants
all of whom are experts in their own fields.
Aim of HYDROPOT
“Limit climate change and increase the use of clean
energy” is the EU strategy for sustainable development. The development
of new and renewable energy sources is the key change. Doubling their
share in the energy supply quota from 6 to 12% and increasing electricity
production based on these energy sources from 14 to 22% is an objective
In this view, HYDROPOT addresses the problem of
integration of renewable energy sources into energy supply chain.
HYDROPOT aims at promoting energy efficiency/saving, increasing the share
of production and use of cleaner energy sources with a reasonable price
while reducing the environmental impact and providing a significant and
quantifiable contribution to European policies in the field of new
renewable energy sources.
This project will provide the IT based methodology for
assessment of the economically feasible hydropower potential of any part
of Europe in particular and of the world in general. For a brief outline
of the project and what we intend to do, please see: Abstract
We thank all participants for their efforts and
co-operation in the preparation of the HYDROPOT proposal. We hope the
proposal will be successful in the evaluation of European Commission and
will be selected for possible funding.
