EREF is the European federation of national renewable energy associations from across EU Member States, representing all renewable energy sectors. Since more than 20 years, the Federation defends the interests of independent power, fuel and heat production from renewable sources, and promotes giving non-discriminatory access to the energy market.

EREF strives to create, maintain and further develop stable and reliable framework conditions for renewable energy sources, strongly advocating for the full decarbonisation of the European energy systems and markets, which need to be transformed and based on 100% decentralized generation from renewable sources.

EREF builds the capacity and competence among its members to make full use of all existing rules and for creating and maintaining a favourable policy and regulatory environment that enables further independent growth and substance, and provides support to renewable energy producers.

EREF keeps renewables stakeholders informed and involved by monitoring legal, policy and market developments, flagging unfair advantages given to incumbent industries by open and hidden, legal and illegal subsidies.

EREF supports the renewable energy industry by legal action in the European institutions as well as in EU Member States - and is the EU’s only renewable energy association that files complaints and court cases against unfair preferential treatment given to nuclear and fossil power, centralized power dominance and discrimination of independent renewable energy producers and production.

EREF is a founding member of IRENA’s multi-stakeholder Coalition for Action and the World Alliance for Efficient Solutions. The federation is member of the Renewable Energy Industry Advisory Board (RIAB) of the IEA (International Energy Agency). EREF is also a member of REN21 (the global renewable energy policy multi-stakeholder network) and its Steering Committee; the Global 100% Renewable Energy Platform, and ECEEE (the European Council for an Energy Efficient Economy).

The Federation is non-profit and governed by EREF’s Statutes and Bylaws.
