“The Benefits of Hydropower: A Global Perspective”
In Alaska, hydropower is increasingly in the news as we look for energy to power our homes, businesses, and economy. Alan Krause, President and CEO of MWH Global will bring a global perspective on how communities around the world benefit from hydropower as an affordable and reliable source of clean energy. Through this global perspective, the audience can better understand the potential benefits of hydropower projects that Alaskan’s are considering today. See attached for Mr. Krause’s biography.
MWH has particular expertise in hydro project development and has been retained by the Alaska Energy Authority to do the preliminary design and other work on the Susitna Watana project. You can find much more information about the company below and on their website at http://www.mwhglobal.com
More details will be forthcoming, however, in the meantime, please consider that lunch will be available at $15 per person, you will be asked to indicate whether you will have lunch in your rsvp.
