Market opportunities for profitable environmental design solutions

Market opportunities for profitable environmental design solutions

Realizing value added environmental solutions

 

This project will explore opportunities and barriers for realization of value creation resulting from environmental measures. 

While the concept of environmental design is well developed, and will be expanded within HydroCen, implementation remains a challenge. 

In project 4.1. we will firstly study how environmental solutions are realized in European hydropower production and how trade-offs between sustainable production, other societal interests and value creation are considered (sub-project 4.1.1).

Moreover, as part of this mapping existing and relevant market-oriented certification and labelling systems will be documented. The results from the first sub-project will, in consultation with the Technical Committee, be used for development of further activities for the remaining project period.
