Helping hydro adapt
The need for hydro to play a greater role in balancing intermittent renewable generation means there are no shortage of challenges for your engineering and science superpowers to overcome!
Your expertise in areas such as hydrology and hydraulics could help us gain better understanding of rivers and how we can best deal with changing precipitation trends.
As a Mechanical Engineer you will come up with clever ways our hydro assets can be more flexible to meet the changing demands of the energy system, as well as provide insight as to how that may impact on wear and tear on dams, turbines and waterways.
With a background in biology you could be working on research to gain greater understanding into fish behaviour to limit our impact on the local environment.
