The Hydrogen Council uses its global reach to promote collaboration between important stakeholders and to provide guidance on accelerating hydrogen deployment around the world. We are committed to building partnerships with international organisations dedicated to building the hydrogen economy and creating innovative sustainable energy solutions. The Hydrogen Council is proud to work alongside and complement work done by our partners to create strong, global action and scale hydrogen deployment.

Strategic partners

The Center for Hydrogen Safety (CHS) is a global oriented non-profit dedicated to promoting hydrogen safety and best practices worldwide. The CHS identifies and addresses concerns regarding the safe use of hydrogen: As a sustainable energy carrier, in commercial and industrial applications, and in hydrogen and fuel cell technologies.

The Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) is a high-level global forum to promote policies and programs that advance clean energy technology, to share lessons learned and best practices, and to encourage the transition to a global clean energy economy. Initiatives are based on areas of common interest among participating governments and other stakeholders. The Framework for the Clean Energy Ministerial, adopted at the seventh Clean Energy Ministerial in 2016, defines the CEM governance structure and outlines the mission statement, objectives, membership, and guiding principles.

Energy Observer is the first hydrogen vessel autonomous in energy, that emits no greenhouse gases or fine particles. This electrically propelled vessel of the future operates through a mix of renewable energies and a system that produces carbon-free hydrogen from seawater. This technological and scientific challenge aims to test cutting-edge technologies in extreme conditions, anticipating the energy networks of the future, that could be used on land, and raise awareness among the general public and decision-makers on the energy transition. 

Energy Observer is currently conducting an Odyssey for the Future that will last six years (2017-2022). During this time, it will visit 50 countries and call at 101 ports to raise public awareness about key aspects of the environmental transition, in particular: renewable energies, biodiversity, mobility, and the circular economy, through the stopovers made by its traveling village, through social media and in a documentary series. This world tour is led by Victorien Erussard, founder and captain, and France’s first ambassador for the UN’s 17 sustainable development goals and Jérôme Delafosse, expedition leader and documentary film series director.

Energy Observer has received the High Patronage of Mr. Emmanuel Macron, President of the French Republic, as well as the official support from the European Union, UNESCO and IRENA. Learn more at: http://www.energy-observer.org

The European Investment Bank (EIB) is the long-term lending institution of the European Union owned by its Member States.
