Swedish Hydropower Centre

Since 2018, the Swedish Hydropower Centre (SVC) has been a centre of expertise developing new knowledge to contribute to a renewable energy system. It specialises in the research and development of technology, systems, methods and issues around hydropower and dams.

The program develops new knowledge for hydropower aimed at meeting society's need for balanced power and renewable electricity production in a safe, efficient and environmentally friendly manner. The initiative means that both society at large, and the hydropower industry will have new technical and academic competence for future maintenance, rebuilding and renewal of hydropower. Issues related to hydroelectric dams and mines are included in the program.

Luleå University of Technology is host university and Energiforsk is responsible for the program that runs until 2020.
