During the last ten years, hydroelectric generation received more and more attention as a source of reliable and economical electricity. Since the first WATERPOWER conference, the industry changed from a neglected technology to a valued source of stable, flexible power. At present, hydropower's energy contributes on par with nuclear power. Canada's hydroelectric power production surpassed the U.S. during the 1980s. Canada now generates more hydroelectricity than the U.S. and is enjoying substantial growth in hydroelectric development. The current robust nature of the hydropower industry contributes to a strong market for goods and services, and provides substantial opportunities to vendors worldwide.
