Workshop Description

Bring your potential microhydro site data to be used as an example. Learn what you need to know about how to develop energy using small water-powered alternators. Vital to anyone with a possible microhydro site in mind, the workshop also conveys important energy insights of interest to activists, policymakers and anyone with a stake in how we get and use energy.

Speaker Bio

Scott Davis has used, worked on, built, designed, operated, repaired, sold and generally fooled around with microhydro technology for decades. He was a founder and president of an award-winning renewable energy project development company, Yalakom Appropriate Technology, and a founder of an energy nonprofit organization, Friends of Renewable Energy BC. He is the author of two books about this technology: Microhydro: Clean Power from Water (the “how to do it” book), and Serious Microhydro: Water Power Solutions from the Experts, an anthology with more than 70 hard-to-find case studies enabling “education by example.” He lives in Victoria, British Columbia.
