In co-operation with the international-centre-for-hydropower (ICH), Statkraft, the Norwegian National Committee of CIGRÉ and IEEE Norway Section are organising an international workshop on Hydro Scheduling in Competitive Electricity Markets.

Aimed at managers and financial experts involved in scheduling and the trading and marketing sectors, the workshop will provide a structured presentation of the principles, status and experiences of hydro scheduling in electricity markets. It has been designed to help provide a basis for understanding the developments that are taking place in the industry.

Presentations will be made by experts from major electric power utilities, universities and research centres who have been involved in market operations and hydro scheduling.

They will focus on methodologies, applications and experiences ranging from long-term scheduling to mid-term and short-term operation. Risk management will also be addressed.

The presentations will be in the form of lectures and discussions and will include opportunities for direct interaction with the presenters.
