Increasing efforts to achieve water and food security and access to reliable electricity supplies have led to a recognised need for further development of clean reliable hydropower on a global scale. This provides the UK hydro industry with significant business opportunities worth millions of pounds per year.
Hydropower has the largest renewable energy technology export potential, with a wide range of UK companies offering extensive capability, experience and expertise to the global supply chain in both services and product/equipment supply.
The BHA works with the Department for International Trade to identify export opportunities for our members world-wide.
