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 serves as a platform for stakeholders in the hydropower field by providing its members with key information and briefings on EU policies and legislation, by promoting networking among hydropower stakeholders and by creating synergies within the renewable energy and other relevant sectors.
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.
