Standard Modular Hydropower (SMH) Resources Webinar

Hosted by Oak Ridge National Laboratory
Event Timing: Thursday, September 6, 2018 | 1-2pm ET (10-11am PT)

Event Description: The Standard Modular Hydropower (SMH) Resources Webinar, hosted by Oak Ridge National Laboratory, will provide an overview and demonstration of two guidelines and tools that are publicly available:

  • Exemplary Design Envelope Specification (EDES) - A framework for technology-neutral conceptual design of modular hydropower technology. The EDES specifies the objectives, requirements, constraints, and performance of exemplary modules, and identifies functional relationships that must be incorporated into facility designs to minimize disruptions of the river continuum.
  • SMH Explorer - A geo-visual analytics platform that empowers user-guided, energy-water-environment-module data analysis and inquiries in support of SMH development. The tool can be used to establish scoping level insights into the type of foundation, generation, water quality, fish passage, recreation, and sediment modules that may be necessary should SMH development be pursued on a stream-reach.
