In addition, their flow regime is often affected by hydropower plant operation. Also the risk of flood damages is increasing continuously due to urbanization requiring additional flood protection measures. Nevertheless, such trained rivers still have high potential for renewable energy production. Furthermore, there is often a need for biotope resto…
