Welcome to IEA Hydrogen

With a 35 + year operating history and significant accomplishments to its credit, the International Energy Agency (IEA) Hydrogen Technology Collaboration Program (TCP) is a unique leader in the management of coordinated hydrogen research, development and demonstration activities on a global basis.

Through the creation and conduct of nearly forty annexes or tasks, IEA Hydrogen has facilitated and managed a comprehensive range of Research, Development & Demonstration (R, D&D) and analysis programs among its Contracting Party (country and international organizations) and Sponsor (industry, PPP, non-profit) Members.


The IEA HIA belongs to the IEA Energy Technology Network, a framework created by the IEA

The Task 32 - H2 Based Energy Storage End of Task Workshop held during the 16th International Symposium on Metal-Hydrogen Systems (MH 2018) on 1 November 2018 in Guangzhou, China featured some of the activities that contributed to making this task the world’s largest and most important forum for hydrogen storage research. The following experts gave presentations that are available to view now: Michael Hirscher, Volodymyr YartysAndreas ZuttelM. Latroche, Teng He, Craig Buckley and Martin Dornheim

Limiting global warming to 1.5°C would require rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society, the IPCC said in a new assessment summary. With clear benefits to people and natural ecosystems, limiting global warming to 1.5°C compared to 2°C could go hand in hand with ensuring a more sustainable and equitable society, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said on Monday. Global Warming of 1.5°C, an IPCC special report on the impacts of global warming of 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels and related global greenhouse gas emission pathways, in the context of strengthening the global response to the threat of climate change, sustainable development, and efforts to eradicate poverty is available now. 

The IEA and the European Commission (EC) held an Electrofuels Workshop on 10 September in Brussels, Belgium. The featured speaker for hydrogen was IEA H2 Chair Paul Lucchese. He gave a presentation entitled Hydrogen: premium electrofuel & building block for all electrofuels. Hydrogen is a building block of all electrofuels and can play a transformative role as a highly flexible energy carrier during the clean energy transition and in an integrated future multi-sector energy system.

The Task 36 Final Report is up now. The goal of IEA HIA Task 36 was to facilitate decision-making in the hydrogen energy sector through nustainability assessment of hydrogen energy systems. Experts from 5 different countries (Spain [Operating Agent], Germany, Japan, Norway, and Italy) worked within the framework of this task.

The 2017 IEA Hydrogen Annual Report offers updates for all tasks active during that calendar year. The Chairmen’s report addresses the significant level of activity within IEA Hydrogen during this period while the Secretariat report summarizes IEA Hydrogen member activity in the greater hydrogen arena.

The Global Trends and Outlook for Hydrogen report is now available. This special report identifies the environmental problems we face and examines why hydrogen offers an elegant solution to our current climate crucible.
