Eighteen hydropower leaders from across the sector have been elected to the new Board of the International Hydropower Association (IHA), including Entura’s Managing Director, Tammy Chu.

Tammy returns to the role for another term, providing a voice for Tasmania and Australia in the global hydropower industry and lending the benefit of our state’s experience and history.

The new Board will begin its two-year mandate on 21 October 2021 and will help shape and guide the IHA’s work at a crucial time in the globe’s clean energy transition.

The results of the 2021 Board elections were announced on 25 August. Candidates competed in 6 geographical regions, electing a diverse range of hydropower experts with a wealth of experience.

​IHA Chief Executive Eddie Rich congratulated the newly elected Board members.

“Their experience and knowledge spanning a wide breadth of the hydropower sector will help establish sustainable hydropower as not just a powerhouse of today, but a technology of the future,”​​ Mr Rich said.

“We have a big job ahead of us. Sustainable hydropower is vital in reaching net zero commitments around the world. This new Board will help shape and drive forward the role of hydropower in the fight against climate change.”

Once the Board is constituted in October 2021, it will select the President of IHA and up to six Vice-Presidents.
