Meeting Our Objectives:
The following activities help us meet these objectives:
Information and disclosure. The Association aims to promote the exchange of technical information between its members, and to provide the technical and institutional information it deems appropriate to authorities and the general public. The Association has its own website for this purpose at www.aeh2.org. Information and news of interest are also distributed to members by e-mail, and publications are prepared for members and/or distributed externally, where appropriate. The Association also takes charge of organizing periodic conferences, meetings or conventions on topics related to hydrogen energy.
Representation. When its members agree, the Association can play an important role in representing the group in defence of common interests, in its relationships with Spanish or international agencies or authorities, and on strategic, legislative and regulatory matters, etc. Within these activities, the Association participates as a partner in the “European Hydrogen Association,” and may also do this in the “International Hydrogen Energy Association.” The Association promotes cooperation (by the association or individual members) with similar associations in the rest of the world. Participation of the Association in its own right may be considered in R+D projects or in theme-based networks or networks of excellence in cases where this is deemed to be better than the individual participation of various members.
Experience and Promotion of Activities. The Association facilitates the identification of experts (individuals or work groups, and members or non-members of the Association) in the different areas covered by the organization. The identification of experts is very useful in establishing agreements or collaboration between members, and between the latter and others. The Association promotes the coordinated implementation of R+D projects at the national and European level that fall within its aims and the scope of its operation.
Regulation. The Association receives the support of experts for collaboration with the public administration in proposing laws and regulations on aspects related to all potential applications of hydrogen energy. The Association will promote committees dedicated to resolving specific problems in which members have a common interest.
Education. The Association encourages training as much as possible on the innovative aspects of hydrogen, as well as personal exchanges between the associated companies and research centres within a framework of collaboration.
