EUREC is the association of European Renewable Energy Research Centres. Created in 1991 and located in Brussels, its mission is to promote and support the development of innovative technologies and human resources to enable a prompt transition towards a sustainable energy system. EUREC members are prominent research and development R&D groups spread across Europe, operating in all renewable energy technologies (wind, biomass, small hydro, marine, geothermal, photovoltaics, solar thermal electricity, and solar thermal heating and cooling). Our members also conduct research into supporting technologies such as energy efficiency, storage, distribution and integration, and undertake studies to evaluate the social and economic aspects surrounding renewable energy. Currently composed of 41 members coming from 16 different European countries, EUREC’ activities focus on four areas of interest:
