The Portuguese Renewable Energy Association (APREN)
The Portuguese Renewable Energy Association (APREN) is a non-profit association, founded in 1988, with the mission of coordination, representation and defense of the common interests of our Members.
Our members are either: singular or collective entities that are authorized to produce renewable electricity (producers); or even any singular or collective entity interested in the technical, legal, financial and economic development of electricity production from renewable energy sources and that can clearly contribute to meet APREN’s purposes (non-producers).
APREN represents more than 90% of all installed capacity of renewable energy sources in Portugal.
APREN develops its work together with official authorities and other similar entities, either national or international, being an important key player in the development of energy policies in Portugal, thereby promoting the deployment of renewable energy resources for electricity production. The Association privileges the coordination and permanent contact with the Portuguese Government, the ministries responsible for energy and environmental issues and their official agencies, as well as a fruitful dialogue with the crucial national stakeholders acting in the renewable electricity sector and also with representatives from the civil society.
Association for Borderless Renewables
Environmental imperatives, including the need to combat global warming, require that all nations contribute what they can to the transition from energy sources reliant upon fossil fuels to renewables.

We have therefore established Association for Borderless Renewables both to foster private investment in this conversion process and to promote cross-border collaboration on projects between regions and countries; with our current focus on the transformation in the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia.
