The International Hydropower Association (IHA) was established in 1995. Today, we are recognised as the leading voice in promoting sustainable practices across the sector.
A new beginning
In the 1990s, Professor Dr. Emil Mosonyi and other eminent figures set about establishing a global non-profit membership association for hydropower.
IHA was founded on 16 November 1995. In the quarter of a century since then, the hydropower sector has undergone momentous change and grown considerably - more than doubling in size from 625 GW to over 1,300 GW today.
