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.
