American Hydrogen Association (AHA)

This is a nonprofit association of individuals and institutions dedicated to the advancement of economical, clean and safe hydrogen energy systems. AHA is working in cooperation with environmental groups, industry, communities, and schools to promote understanding of hydrogen technology and to help create a marketplace for pollution-free hydrogen energy. The site features recent news in the hydrogen industry, links for more information, and educational resources.

National Hydrogen Association (NHA)

The National Hydrogen Association (NHA) is a membership organization founded by a group of ten industry, university, research, and small business members in 1989. Today, NHA boasts nearly 85 members including representatives from the automotive and aerospace industry, federal state, and local governments, energy providers, and many other industry stakeholders. NHA plays a critical role in hydrogen commercialization by serving as a catalyst for information exchange and cooperative projects, and providing the setting for mutual support among industry, government, and research/academic organizations.

National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL)

NREL is the nation's primary laboratory for renewable energy and energy efficiency research and development. NREL was established in 1974 and in September 1991, was designated a national laboratory of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). This specific link provides basic information on hydrogen, fuel cells and infrastructure development.

Sustainable Energy Coalition (SEC)

The SEC is comprised of over 30 national business, environmental, consumer, and energy policy organizations. The Coalition was founded in 1992 and promotes increased federal support for energy efficiency, renewable energy technologies and reduced federal support for unsafe or polluting energy resources. The Sustainable Energy Coalition provides basic hydrogen information, an examination into the benefits of the fuel, and a brief comparison to other energy sources.
