End-User Requirements and Architecture Design for the ICT Components of iAMP-Hydro & iAMP implementation

Worked on in work package 9 & 10, lead by Suite5

The main challenge in the European hydropower sector is the poor integration of digital technologies and data analytics into existing practices, leading to inefficient data use while also hindering hydro plants’ performance optimisation and their efficient operation. Issues include bad data quality, inconsistent data practices, difficulties in updating old data, and a lack of unified standards and advanced analytics skills. This results in suboptimal energy production and increased failure risks. Essentially, the sector needs a significant digital overhaul to improve efficiency, asset value, and support sustainability.

Solution in prospect:
The iAMP-Hydro project, particularly through WP9 and WP10, is tackling the EU’s hydropower sector's issues by advancing digital transformation, focusing on data governance, security, and user-centric analytics. More specifically, WP9 aims to define the project’s use cases, gather end-user requirements, and design the ICT framework, ensuring the solutions are tailored to actual industry needs and promoting user engagement. WP10 builds on this by streamlining data management, enhancing data sharing with security measures, and enabling sophisticated data analytics. This integrated approach not only addresses operational inefficiencies but also ensures the developed solutions are aligned with the users' needs and industry standards, promoting collaboration, improving asset performance, and fostering sustainability in hydropower practices.
