The Australian Association for Hydrogen Energy was established is for the benefit of the Australian public, to advance the knowledge and understanding of production, storage, transport, safety, distribution and end use of hydrogen energy.
The AAHE was established in response to a Hydrogen Roadmap commissioned by the Australian Federal Government in 2008. Since then the association has promoted hydrogen as a clean and sustainable fuel and energy storage medium in Australia. Until recently membership was open to both individuals and corporate bodies. We have sought to promote the use of hydrogen energy, informing engineers and other professionals in the energy business as well as academic researchers, students and others with an interest in clean and sustainable energy systems.
At its inception, the AAHE was the only national association promoting the use of hydrogen as an energy carrier, its integration in the Australian energy economy, and the development and deployment of hydrogen energy technologies, such as fuel cells. More recently therse roles have been taken by the Australian Smart Energy Council, Hydrogen Australia division.
The AAHE will continue to serve as the representative body for Australia in the International Energy Agency Hydrogen Collaboration Program (IEA Hydrogen TCP) until March 2023.
