Résumé
This dissertation was written as a part of the MSc in Energy Systems at the International Hellenic University. Climate Change is a common natural phenomenon, with impacts that are becoming more adverse due to anthropogenic activities. Renewable Energies offer the ability to heal the devastating consequences of human behavior, although being vulnerable.to climate change. Hydropower, as a renewable energy resource is playing a key role in a global effort to ensure an ecofriendly future. The energy sector, as life preserver, should be protected against climate change, therefore, different measures and strategies should be applied accordingly. Greece, as part of Europe, is already facing global warming in all aspects of life. Hydropower production can offer the opportunity to withdraw from a coal dependent energy production. Studies have been conducted, that evaluate the current climate conditions and other indicators, such as precipitation, temperature and runoff, which influence hydropower production. Estimations and proposals for the future include reservoir volume control, water management programes and enhanced managerial strategies.
