    On April 23rd this year the International Hydropower Association Office announced the Joint Statement by Hydropower and Generator Associations on Covid-19. The statement emphasises that the efforts aimed at economic recovery after COVID-19 pandemia should be directed in a greater extent to the hydropower sector which on the one hand has substantially suffered due to uncertainty and lack of the financial liquidity and refinancing numerous hydropower projects and on the other one represents a significant and even essential source of electricity in numerous regions worldwide. Globally it is also the most significant source of "green" electricity and key tool providing grid safety and stability under conditions of rising penetration by intermittent electricity sources.

    The Polish Hydropower Association is to be found among 16 signatories of the Statement. Our intention is to apply for assigning a part of the resources of the EU 2022-27 financial perspective and the fund of European economy recovery after COVID 2019 pandemia.
