The European Renewable Energies Federation (EREF) is a federation of national renewable energy associations from EU Member States, such as wind, solar, small hydro, bio-energy, tidal, wave, and geothermal sources. EREF is striving to defend the interests of independent power, fuel and heat production from renewable sources and to promote non discriminatory access to the energy market. EREF is a member of EREC, the European Renewable Energy Council.
The Hydro Equipment Association (HEA) is an international not-for-profit organisation based in Brussels that represents electro-mechanical equipment suppliers for hydropower globally. HEA’s vision is to position hydropower as the first, largest and most efficient renewable energy source which also fulfils other needs, including CO2 savings, energy storage, flood control, irrigation, water supply, and sustainable economic and social development. Since its foundation in 2001, HEA has become the voice of the hydropower supply-chain sector, an industry deeply rooted in the tradition of engineering excellence.
REScoop.eu is the recently founded federation of groups and cooperatives of citizens for renewable energy in Europe. About 2000 REScoops are now active across Europe, especially in Germany, Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden , Finland and the UK. We consider Renewable Energy Sources as common goods of which the exploitation is best done by cooperatives or other community power initiatives. REScoop.eu is associated member of Cooperatives Europe, the umbrella organisation of the cooperative movement in Europe.
