The Asia Pacific Hydrogen Association (APAC Hydrogen Association) has been formed in Singapore by several industry executives from the renewable energy sector in Asia, in order to promote the use of hydrogen in the region’s power networks.
The APAC Hydrogen Association will coordinate international policy, communications, research and analysis and will provide services to support members’ requirements and needs to help their development, offering the best networking and learning opportunities in the sector within AsiaPacific. The association has already received strong support from several leading stakeholders in the hydrogen industry and has welcomed several senior executives on its advisory board.
“Our mission is to establish and promote the use of hydrogen in the regional economies power as a solution to the region’s rapidly growing energy demand and environmental challenges, providing meaningful benefits to the region as a whole” said Edgare Kerkwijk, one of the founders of the association.
Several activities are being planned in the coming year. In addition to quarterly membership gatherings and industry-specific seminars, the association will organize the first annual Asia Hydrogen Energy Conference during the Singapore International Energy Week in October 2020. This will be the first large-scale regional event for the hydrogen industry.
