The Hydrogen Council has formed strategic partnerships with like-minded organizations around the world.

IEA & IEA Hydrogen

The IEA is at the heart of global dialogue on energy, providing authoritative analysis, data, policy recommendations, and real-world solutions to help countries provide secure and sustainable energy for all. It was created in 1974 to help co-ordinate a collective response to major disruptions in the supply of oil.

Taking an all-fuels, all-technology approach, the IEA recommends policies that enhance the reliability, affordability and sustainability of energy.

IEA Hydrogen, founded in 1977, is a global research and innovation collaboration in hydrogen science and technology. Its vision is a hydrogen future based on a clean sustainable energy supply of global proportions that plays a key role in all sectors of the economy. Its mission is to accelerate hydrogen deployment and use through R,D&D, analysis and outreach.

IEA Hydrogen membership consists of Contracting Parties (governments and international organizations) and Sponsors (industry, public-private partnerships and associations), including the Hydrogen Council. The member-driven IEA Hydrogen portfolio is organized in tasks and supporting outreach and analysis activities. IEA Hydrogen is part of the IEA Technology Collaboration Programs (TCP) network.

The Clean Energy Ministerial

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.


The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) is an intergovernmental organization that supports countries in their transition to a sustainable energy future, and serves as the principal platform for international cooperation, a center of excellence, and a repository of policy, technology, resource and financial knowledge on renewable energy.

IRENA promotes the widespread adoption and sustainable use of all forms of renewable energy, including bioenergy, geothermal, hydropower, ocean, solar and wind energy in the pursuit of sustainable development, energy access, energy security and low-carbon economic growth and prosperity.


The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) is a specialized agency of the United Nations with a unique mandate to promote, dynamize and accelerate sustainable industrial development.

The mandate of UNIDO is reflected in Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 9: “Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation”, but UNIDO’s activities contribute to all the SDGs. UNIDO’s mission is to drive economic growth, reduce inequality, and address climate challenges by supporting developing countries and economies in transition in achieving sustainable industrial development and economic transformation, and to create new, decent jobs. 

Center for Hydrogen Safety

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.

Mission Innovation

Mission Innovation (MI) is a global initiative of 24 countries and the European Commission (on behalf of the European Union) working to reinvigorate and accelerate global clean energy innovation with the objective to make clean energy widely affordable. MI was announced at COP21 on November 30, 2015, as world leaders came together in Paris to commit to ambitious efforts to combat climate change.

Mission Innovation is a global initiative working to accelerate clean energy innovation. The power of innovation – driven by sustained public investment coupled with business leadership – can make clean energy widely affordable and bring fledgling ideas into the mainstream.

World Economic Forum

The World Economic Forum, committed to improving the state of the world, is the International Organization for Public-Private Cooperation. The Forum engages the foremost political, business and other leaders of society to shape global, regional and industry agendas.

European Investment Bank

The European Investment Bank (EIB) is the long-term lending institution of the European Union owned by its Member States. It makes long-term finance available for sound investment in order to contribute towards EU policy goals. Since November 2019, the EIB has been dedicated to become the European climate bank, promoting green long-term investments and financing new technologies that will help fight climate change.
