Activities

Main EU initiatives covered the year before by activities falling under the scope of the Transparency Register:


The Hydro Equipment Association has recently produced a Technology Roadmap on Hydro Equipment to raise awareness of the innovation challenge of the sector. This Roadmap is closely linked to the future EU strategy regarding Energy Technologies and the Research and Development funding programme. Therefore, HEA has been following closely all the developments in this field, as the public consultation of the Communication on Energy Technologies or the discussions by the European Parliament and the Council on Horizon 2020.

Being Hydropower part of the Renewable Energy family, HEA has shown a special interest for the different EU initiatives in this framework, as the European Parliament report on Current challenges and opportunities for renewable energy on the European energy market, or the debate for the strategy to follow ahead the 2020 targets.

HEA has been recently accepted to participate as an observer in the Strategic Co-ordination Group (SCG) for the implementation of the Water Framework Directive under the Common Implementation Strategy (CIS).
