The National Hydropower Association (NHA) is a nonprofit national association dedicated exclusively to advancing the interests of the hydropower industry. It seeks to secure hydropower's place as a climate-friendly, renewable and reliable energy source that serves national environmental and energy policy objectives.

NHA unites the diverse North American hydropower community, providing a powerful advocacy voice among U.S. decision makers, the general public and the international community. Through membership, individuals and organizations gain access to regulatory bodies, influence over energy and environmental policy and a means to exchange valuable information with one's peers.

Founded in 1983, NHA represents 61percent of domestic, non-federal hydroelectric capacity and nearly 80,000 megawatts overall in North America. Its membership consists of more than 140 organizations including public utilities, investor owned utilities, independent power producers, equipment manufacturers, environmental and engineering consultants and attorneys.
