    • Permanent Technical Panel• PTP meetings and workshops ► Several regional and national meetings in all participating countries ► Discussion about the SHARE tools and active participation of the stakeholders ► Workshops have been broadly advertised in the regions to ensure maximum possibility of representation from a variety of stakeholdersSHARE, Final meeting – Aosta – Italy, 24th May 2012
    • Permanent Technical Panel• Results ► The exchange with the stakeholders provided us with valuable feedback on our activities ► Opportunities to contribute to the elaboration of new tools ► Stakeholder dialogues to share experiences hold the potential for innovative solutionsSHARE, Final meeting – Aosta – Italy, 24th May 2012
    • Pilot Case Studies• SHARE approach and tools have been tested in 11 pilot case studies• The local PTP is involved in these pilot case studies as both a steering committee and a pool of expert• The feedback to the SHARE partners is used to improve the toolsSHARE, Final meeting – Aosta – Italy, 24th May 2012
    • Support by software tools• Software tools developed during the project to support the multicriteria approach: • Vapidro Aste • Smart Mini Idro• Developer and customizer: RSESHARE, Final meeting – Aosta – Italy, 24th May 2012
    • Assessment of the remaininghydropower potential in watercourses VAPIDRO-ASTE is a free GIS tool, developed by RSE (Italy) that calculates the remaining hydropower potential in a watercourse and the best locations of future plants, considering the Digital Elevation Model, the measured flows and the present withdrawals.SHARE, Final meeting – Aosta – Italy, 24th May 2012
    • New project creation In the frame of the SHARE project, a VAPIDRO-ASTE a customized version was produced. The version will be delivered including the Digital Elevation Model of the Alpine Space area: When creating a new project, the whole map of the Alpine Space is shown. The user is able to select and area where to work on. Testing detailed area Alpine Space AreaSHARE, Final meeting – Aosta – Italy, 24th May 2012
    • Area selection, sub-basincomputation VAPIDRO-ASTE is able to create Automatic river generation automatically the river network, departing from the Digital Elevation Model and the density factorSHARE, Final meeting – Aosta – Italy, 24th May 2012
    • Installable power and energy It is possible to view the discharge, energy and power tables an charts in reference to the selected river. The “x” axis is the progressive distance measured from the closure. Structural lenght Energy (kWh/year) Power (kW)SHARE, Final meeting – Aosta – Italy, 24th May 2012
    • Installable power in a GIS map VAPIDRO ASTE is able to visualize the results on GIS, as a map with a coloured scale (heads, energy and power, cost, benefits, financial parameters) Installable Power (kW)SHARE, Final meeting – Aosta – Italy, 24th May 2012
