During the four-day event, Copperleaf will advise hydro professionals from around the world on how to make asset investment decisions that are effective, transparent, and focused on the long-term performance of the organization.

Copperleaf will help kick off the Asset Management track on Wednesday, July 23 at 9:30am, in a session titled “Keeping the Long-Range View in a Short-Term-Focused World.” Boudewijn Neijens, Copperleaf’s Chief Marketing Officer, will be joined by a panel of experts from Bonneville Power Administration, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and others, to explore different methods that can be used to prioritize capital programs across portfolios of assets.

Copperleaf has also been invited to present in the HydroVision Poster Gallery on Friday, July 25. Copperleaf VP of Marketing Barry Quart will be on hand to walk attendees through an eight step process to improve project performance management, highlighting how best practice organizations use continuous planning and management to improve project execution rates.

“It’s been a year since the Hydropower Regulatory Efficiency Act (HREA) legislation was approved, and numerous initiatives are now under way to tap some of the estimated 60,000 MW of potential hydro capacity,” said Boudewijn Neijens. “The challenge many hydro companies are now facing is how to compare alternative long-term investment strategies, and determine which combination of investments will deliver the highest value over the planning horizon. We’re at this event to help hydro professionals learn how Copperleaf’s Asset Investment Planning & Management solutions can help them do that.”
