BHA Brochure (detailing membership levels)
Membership is open to all commercial organisations, academia, charities, community groups and individuals involved with or interested in hydropower. Our membership is diverse, covering all sizes and types of hydropower.
Small and large generators benefit directly from our lobbying activities, particularly because we act as a unified voice on behalf of a large group of stakeholders when negotiating with policy- makers and regulators.
Suppliers of services and equipment benefit greatly from the networking opportunities we create, both at home and overseas, and the support we provide to the industry with respect to exporting prospects.
Members from all areas of the industry are reliant on each other and so we must strive to work together in order to ensure a prosperous future for hydropower. Whatever your area of activity within the hydro industry, BHA membership will enhance your operations and add value to your organisation.
