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 and to remove any barrier to further SHP development in the EU.
