Welcome to the
Hydro Equipment Association (HEA)

Hydropower is the number one renewable energy source.

The Hydro Equipment Association (HEA) was founded in 2001 and represents electro-mechanical equipment suppliers for hydro power globally.

HEA supports sustainable development and public acceptance of hydropower globally:

  • through participating in the public debate about the development of energy supply strategies,
  • by taking full account of hydro’s economic, social, environmental and political aspects,
  • by being a partner in coalitions, promoting good practice in hydroelectric projects.
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, sustainable economic and social development.
