Task 2.3: Environmental impacts of future operating conditions

The operation patterns of hydropower plants will change with the energy transition, both as increased flexibility on an hourly scale and as seasonal shift to reduce the production gap in the winter months. The resulting changes of discharge, temperature and sediment regimes will be quantified, and the impact on the ecosystem will be identified. Technical solution how to mitigate these effects are developed within the FLEXSTOR project.
