The results of the study will be presented for the first time in Austria at the VERBUND Energy Breakfast.
 
After some welcoming words by DI Wolfgang Anzengruber, CEO VERBUND, study author Christian Hewicker from DNV GL will present the results of the study in his keynote speech on the macroeconomic value of hydropower in Europe.
