As part of her visit, the Hydro-BPT team were asked to present some of their work to the Minister and other Welsh Government staff, in addition to Bangor University's Vice-Chancellor John Hughes. The presentation was given by the Bangor Hydro-BPT Principal Investigator, Dr. A. Prysor Williams.
Dr. Williams gave an overview presentation of the water industry and the challenges facing the sustainability of the sector, and detailed the work carried out by the Hydro-BPT team to assess the techincal, economic and environmental potential of micro-hydropower. The presentation raised questions by the minister with regards to the involvement of organisations like Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water in this project, to which Hydro-BPT have ensured that they are represented as a project stakeholder and actively involved in steering committee meetings.
