We study present and perspective productivity of the Sabbione hydropower plant, operating since 1953 in Piemonte, Italy, placed at 2460 m asl and with a 44 Mm3 storage, taking melt water from the 3 km2 Sabbione glacier. We assess hydrological budget, and hydropower production at present, and we then project forward hydrology under climate change scenarios from IPCC to evaluate hydropower production under reservoir’s re-operation along the XXI century. Production would decrease in the future (-15% on average at half century, and -16% at the end of century), demonstrating potential loss of hydropower profitability in the Alps, and claiming for adaptation measures therein.
