The European Renewable Energy Research Centres Agency was established as a European Economic Interest Grouping in 1991 to strengthen and rationalise the European research, demonstration and development efforts in all renewable energy technologies. As an independent member-based association, it incorporates 43 prominent research groups from all over Europe.
EUREC members' research fields include all renewable energy technologies (wind, biomass, small hydro, marine, geothermal, photovoltaics, solar thermal power and solar buildings). Our members also conduct research into supporting technologies such as energy efficiency, storage, distribution and integration. Moreover, they study the social and economic aspects relevant to renewable energy.
