The Australian Association for Hydrogen Energy (AAHE) was formed in late 2009 as the 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.


Building on the success of the 2008 World Hydrogen Energy Conference, held in Brisbane, the AAHE has been established to represent a wide range of Australian stakeholders, from industry and academia, to federal, state and local government, that have an interest in hydrogen and its role in clean energy and transportation.
