Welcome to ICOLD 2015 in Stavanger

With its 4 000 river courses and 250 000 lakes, Norway is a blessed country when it comes to hydropower. An installed capacity of 29 000 MW ensures that virtually all electricity consumption
is covered from hydropower. Hence, hydropower is one of Norway´s most important natural resources. This has been an important factor in the favourable economic development of the country for the last century.

More than 1 000 hydropower stations, 330 large dams, hydropower sector with power companies, manufacturers, major consulting and engineering companies, contractors and R&D institutions, provide an excellent framework for international gatherings in Norway. In addition the scenic surroundings of Western Norway, with its fjords, mountains, glaciers and rivers constitute a breath-taking framework of the Stavanger events.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Norway in June 2015!

Come to Norway – Feel the Power!
