A Cleaner, Healthier World Community

International Partnership for the Hydrogen Economy (IPHE)

The International Partnership for the Hydrogen Economy (IPHE) creates a mechanism to organize and implement effective, efficient, and focused research, and to develop and deploy activities that advance hydrogen and fuel cell programs. The coordination instituted through the IPHE will leverage limited resources and bring together the worlds best intellects and talents to solve difficult challenges to making the hydrogen economy a reality. The IPHE will foster the implementation of cooperative efforts to advance research, development, demonstration and commercial use of hydrogen production, storage, transport and distribution. It will also enhance collaboration on fuel cell technologies, common codes and standards for hydrogen fuel utilization, and help to coordinate international efforts to develop a global hydrogen economy.

The ultimate goal of the IPHE will be to enable Partner countries consumers to have the practical option of purchasing competitively priced hydrogen powered vehicles that can be refueled near their homes and places of work.

Partner countries include: the United States Australia, India, Brazil, Italy, Canada, Japan, China, Korea, European Commission, Norway, France, Russia, Germany, United Kingdom, and Iceland .
