Committee Vision:

The Hydroelectric Productivity Committee (HPC) will provide the standard in the hydroelectric industry for energy performance information.

Committee Mission:

The HPC will provide comparative operating and maintenance performance information on hydroelectric facilities and provide forums for members to optimize performance.

Objectives for the HPC include:

  • To maintain and improve a hydroelectric Operating and Maintenance database which allows comparative analysis and performance information.
  • To build and maintain database participation to a statistically significant level in each group or class.
  • To provide effective products that present and exchange information focused on optimizing members' processes and business performance.

Committee Products:

The products of the HPC are a database, best practices review and peer exchange symposiums. The database, which contains HPC member facility information on about 350 hydro plants and 70,000 MW capacity is managed by a third party contractor.

Committee Services:

The HPC maintains a cost and performance database on approximately 350 plants. The spring and fall workshops provide an opportunity to share best practices. Leading Performers and the drivers of their performance are identified at the fall workshop. On a biennial basis the committee sponsors a plant management symposium at which operations and maintenance issues are discussed.
