  • In Italien stammen bereits 67 % der erneuerbaren Energie aus Wasserkraft. Damit gehört Italien mit Spanien und Frankkreich zu den führenden Nutzern von Wasserkraft in Europa. Gemäß des Italienischen Mitgliedskommitee des World Energy Council WEC (Weltenergierat) liegt die aktuell vorhandene Kapazität bei 18.092 MW. 2011 betrug die Energie aus Wasserkraft 45 TWh. Es wurde errechnet, dass die Kapazität von Italien bei rund 200 TWh liegt, davon 47 TWh ökonomisch genutzt werden können.

  • Invest in Balkan region!

    Bosnia and Herzegovina has about 3500 MW of unused hydropower potential. Macedonia about 5500 GWH, of which only about 27% are used. Montenegro, although it is only a small country, has an abundance of hydropower resources. The planned re-commissioning of 15 small hydropower plants in Serbia is another example of the rapid developments in this region. And even in mountainous Albania the first projects of international small-scale hydropower investors have already been realized.

    7 reasons to invest in the Western Balkans:

    1. Prospective EU membership
    2. Macroeconomic stability
    3. Strategic location
    4. Favourable taxes and cost
    5. Diverse economies
    6. Well-educated population
    7. Excellent Hydro Power Projects available

  • Hydropower is focussing on Africa's future!

    Hydropower today supplies 32 percent of Africa’s total energy supply. However, with a current capacity of 20 GW per year the Hydropower potential is only used by about seven percent. Many hydropower projects are funded by a development cooperation between Europe and Africa.

    Connection African and European developers and investors! 

    In 2017,  the Small Hydropower Chapter of the European Renewable Energies Federation (EREF) organised a hydropower workshop in conjunction with a matchmaking event during the RENEXPO INTERHYDRO.

    Both events have been organised in cooperation with the Africa-EU Renewable Energy Cooperation Programme (RECP), a multi-donor programme that supports the development of markets for renewable energy in Africa.
