On behalf of the Organizing Committee and myself, it is my pleasure to invite you to participate in the next Symposium on Hydraulic Machinery and Systems. This event will be held in Montreal, Canada, in late September 2014, just as the city welcomes the fall season and the trees start to show their nice colors.
The Symposium will take place at Hotel Omni, located in the heart of the city. Participants will then have the opportunity to discover the many charms of Montreal, a rich blend between European and American cultures with diverse culinary offers and its legendary hospitality, nightlife and unique attractions.
But other than the charm of Montreal, why are we holding it in Canada?
Canada is a world leader in hydropower production, with an installed capacity of over 70,000 megawatts (MW), and an annual average production of 350 terawatt-hours (TWh).
Thus, Canada is one of the world’s largest producers of clean, renewable hydroelectric power.
Hydro power accounts for 97% of Canada's renewable electricity generation and nearly 13% of the world-wide production of hydropower, but with 0.5% of the world population.
Approximately 60% of the electricity generated in Canada in 2008 came from hydroelectric power plants.
And there is the potential to more than double the hydroelectric capacity in Canada.
Our organization committee was formed in November of 2011 and has already undertaken a number of important steps to ensure that this event will be a very successful one. We see this event as a very important one to help create personal networks and transfer knowledge to the younger generation of scientists.
We look forward to seeing you at our next “rendez-vous” in Montreal in September 2014.
