We describe a holistic approach for the management of complex hydrosystems whose primary aim is hydropower production. This is based on the parameterisation-simulation-optimization methodological framework, which is implemented within the Decision Support System “Hydronomeas”. After the analysis of the developed methodology and simulation and optimization tools, a number of applications in the Acheloos-Thessaly hydrosystem are shown. The results include the assessment of the hydropower potential of the system as well as its corresponding benefit, thus being of particular interest to long-term energy planning.
