wassertriebwerk is the official organ of Bundesverband Deutscher Wasserkraftwerke (BDW) e.V. and of the German federal hydro-power station working groups.

It offers comprehensive and up-to-date information on hydropower, water management, water legislation, and electricity industry issues. In addition, the magazine reports on all the valuable BDW activities and informs about their work programmes and assemblies held. Since its founding in 1952, the journal regards itself as a mouthpiece of small and medium-sized hydropower stations which are a very interesting group of enterprises using renewable and environmentally friendly energy resources. In recent years, small hdropower stations managed to strengthen their position in German economy, and environmental awareness increased, too.


Small and medium-sized hydropower stations, power plants, sawmills, mills, and other industrial enterprises using hydropower, engineering offices, hydraulic engineering companies, machine factories, service companies and repair workshops, public utility companies, water mana- gement authorities as well as associations and interested individuals
