Iran International Hydropower Plant Conference Kicks Off 


The First International and Third National Conference on Dams and Hydropower Plants opened in Tehran.
According to Conference’s PR, in the opening ceremony, Seyed Mohammad Reza Rezazadeh welcomed the domestic and oversea guests and congratulated Fajr decade, as well as the birthday anniversary of Prophet (PBUH) and Imam Jafar Sadeq (AS).
He called supplying water and energy as two main issues for reaching balanced development which has a dominant role in people’s welfare.
“Generating hydroelectric energy contributes to meeting two basic needs, as well as realizing another necessity which is preserving environment and reaching sustainable development,” he added.
Referring that generating per mega watt of clean energy will prevent emission of 635 kilograms carbon dioxide, Rezazadeh mentioned: “Planning for utilizing all usable potentials in setting up dams and hydropower plants is of a great importance.” 
The president of the First International Conference on Dams and Hydropower Plants put the share of hydro power plants in generating the word’s electricity at about 19%, and said: “In some countries, huge part of the consumed energy is met by hydroelectric plants, yet using the water energy for generating limited electricity depends on the existence of climatic conditions, topography, geology, environmental, social and economic situations.”
 He cited that the duty of engineers and experts in hydroelectric industry is using knowledge and experiences in the related scientific fields.
“The potentials of God-given nature should be actualized by comprehensive technical and environmental studies and applying the most appropriate methods, materials and equipment, the most economical strategies, as well as planning to attract the financial resources,” he added.
