The European Small Hydropower Association (ESHA) is a lobby organisation promoting the interest of small hydropower in Europe and globally. ESHA was established in 1989 and is a founding member of EREC (European Renewable Energy Council). ESHA is ideally located with other renewable energy sources (RES) Associations in the Renewable Energy House in Brussels just a block away from the European institutions.

ESHA wants to use synergies at the European, national and local level in order to develop the small hydropower sector. ESHA serves to create a platform for actors in the field of SHP and to represent their interests at European level. ESHA is structured as a federation of EU national hydropower associations and is open to members from all sectors involved in small hydropower. Through the diversity of its members, ESHA is at the forefront of information on ongoing research and market trends regarding small hydropower.

ESHA has as its goal to raise the awareness and the interests of the small hydropower sector at European level in order to

  • Guarantee the representation of the sector at EU level
  • Improve the market conditions of the SHP industry
  • Increase the electricity production from SHP
  • Remove any barrier to further SHP development in the EU
