History of AHC

Hydrogen Mobility Australia was formed in 2017 with founding members Toyota and Hyundai.

Its objectives were to:

  • Accelerate the commercialisation of new hydrogen and fuel cell technologies for transportation, export, storage and stationary applications in Australia
  • Provide a forum for effective communication and collaboration of all stakeholders in the hydrogen and energy community
  • Progress Australia’s shift towards a future hydrogen society built upon clean and renewable energy technologies

The membership grew quickly: by mid-2019 there were 33 members from the energy, transport, consulting and technology sectors.

On 4 October 2019, Hydrogen Mobility Australia changed its name to the Australian Hydrogen Council. This was to reflect the diversity of our growing membership and broad hydrogen agenda.

The name change represented an exciting milestone for the organisation as momentum for hydrogen builds across both mobility and energy applications.
