ESHA at a glance
The European Small Hydropower Association (ESHA) represents the interest of the hydropower sector by promoting the benefits and opportunities of hydropower at EU level. The association campaigns for improved market conditions for the hydropower sector, removal of any barriers to hydropower development and an increase in hydro-electricity production in Europe.

ESHA is a federation of European national hydropower associations as well as members from all sectors of the hydropower field, such as equipment manufacturers, public utilities, independent producers, research institutes, investors, industry and consultants.
ESHA, founded in 1989 as an initiative of the European Commission, is ideally located with other Renewable Energy Associations in the Renewable Energy House in Brussels just a block away from the European institutions.
