NHA is creating a unique educational program for Clean Currents—this is how it's being developed ...

During the planning phases when we were envisioning this all-new waterpower industry experience, NHA solicited input from members and non-members on industry event wants and needs. When people shared with us their perceptions of education opportunities at other national events, it became clear that there was a need to develop a well-rounded program not limited to technical content. People wanted to experience relevant content that remains dynamic and helps answer the challenges of our ever-changing industry.

To continue in the spirit of industry involvement and assure that content for the event answers the needs of the industry, NHA staff has sought the guidance, input, and counsel of NHA member companies, the industry at large, and those that influence, regulate, and affect the industry. We have organized topic-based working groups of representatives; discussions and sharing among these groups ensure the industry’s most vital topics continue to rise to the surface.

The working groups are encouraged to focus on topics that would lead to sharing technical best practices in a variety of disciplines. To expand beyond technical content, our program will also include ‘how to’-type sessions to help asset owners improve operations and management and apply innovation that will:

  • reduce costs;
  • increase flexibility;
  • and support additional clean renewable power generation.

Most importantly, NHA feels that as your industry voice and advocate, it is our responsibility to transform your input into conference content, versus relying on industry professionals like yourself to “do the heavy lifting.” NHA staff will do the work to build an exciting program so you can remain focused on your core duties. 

In addition to getting the topics “right,” NHA is committed to delivering content in compelling ways to create an educational experience unique to Clean Currents. Our objective is to offer a variety of learning formats including:

Hands-on tours


Brief announcements in the Powerhouse

Informal roundtables

Asset-owner-only discussion sessions

Panel discussions

Formal technical presentation

A Pledge to Our NHA Clean Current Working Group Volunteers

NHA recognizes that the individuals participating in our working groups are volunteering their time. This is why we have pledged to be thoughtful and respectful of their time and are committed to making their involvement a positive and valuable experience.
