KWL Wins at CEBC Awards

March 07, 2008

KWL received the Award of Merit for its Rapid Hydropower Assessment Model (RHAM) at the March 8, 2008 CEBC Awards Gala. RHAM is a powerful GIS-based computer model that KWL developed to assess run-of-the-river hydroelectric potential. The model was applied to a project for BC Hydro and the British Columbia Transmission Corporation (BCTC) to identify all potential run-of-the-river hydroelectric sites in BC.

RHAM enabled completion of the assessment in an astonishing four months! It also identified over 8,200 viable sites, representing over 50,000 gigawatt-hours of electricity per year.
