Future Hydro Albania, organised together with the Ministry of Energy & Industry and a number of local partners, is the only annual event in the country focusing on Albania’s hydro energy potential, development and investment.

Future Hydro Albania provides a platform to exchange information and the opportunity for both the potential and existing investors and the investment community to meet and network in a 5 star environment. It is intended to support hydropower development in Albania, increase foreign direct investment and aid further privatisation of the hydropower industry.

While the event showcases top technology providers it is also content driven and addresses the key issues the Albanian hydro energy industry is facing, including the main drivers: reducing CO2, increasing energy security, enabling access to affordable financing, reducing energy production costs and alleviating poverty in rural areas through deployment of small hydropower installations.

How is the event different in 2018?

Most importantly, following the success of 2017 edition, the greater number of booths, over 200 pre-subscribed attendees with special attendance from a number of key investors and developers, both local and international as well as leading construction companies.

Albanian hydro energy market overview:

Albania has a liberalized economic framework and conditions for doing business and attracting FDI are improving constantly. In Albania, building new power generation capacities and transmission lines to support its future energy needs and to export is a government priority. According to Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP) the country has only exploited 35% of the total potential. Total hydropower reserves are estimated at around 3,000 MW. Potential annual generation may reach up to 16.000 GWh.

Furthermore, the Albanian electricity system relies almost entirely on hydro to cover its electricity demand with 1.7 GW of hydropower capacity installed, according to information from the Energy Community.

Future Hydro Albania conference and exhibition will host major developers, ministries, investors, lawyers, energy regulatory agencies, energy traders, utilities and technology companies.
