The Association strives to advance the day when HYDROGEN ENERGY
will become the principal means by which the world will achieve
its long-sought goal of Abundant Clean Energy for Mankind. Toward
this end, the Association stimulates the exchange of information
in Hydrogen Energy field through its publications and sponsorship
of international workshops, short courses and conferences. In addition,
the Association endeavors to inform the general public of the important
role of Hydrogen Energy in the planning of an inexhaustible and
clean energy system.
The Association has an official scientific journal, International
Journal of Hydrogen Energy,
organises biennial World Hydrogen Energy Conferences - including
exhibitions - around the world (the last World Hydrogen Energy Conference
took place in Zaragoza, Spain, June 2016; the next one, WHEC 22,
will take place in Rio De Janerio, Brazil, June 2018); publishes the proceedings of these conferences as the Hydrogen
Progress volumes; and maintains and updates this Internet site. International
Journal of Hydrogen Energy is published by Elsevier on behalf of the
International Association for Hydrogen Energy, find out more about the
journal on the journal homepage www.elsevier.com/locate/he.
Hydrogen is considered to be an ideal energy carrier in the foreseeable future. It can be produced from water by using a variety of energy sources, such as solar, nuclear and fossils, and it can be converted into useful energy forms efficiently and without detrimental environmental effects. The only by-product is water or water vapor (if air is used for flame combustion of hydrogen, small amounts of NOx are produced). When solar energy - in its direct and/or indirect forms - is used to produce hydrogen from water, both the primary and secondary forms of energy become renewable and environmentally compatible, resulting with an ideal, clean and permanent energy system - the Solar Hydrogen Energy System. Hydrogen can be used in any application in which fossil fuels are being used today, with sole exception of cases in which carbon is specifically needed. Hydrogen can be used as a fuel in furnaces, internal combustion engines, turbines and jet engines, even more efficiently than fossil fuels, i.e., coal, petroleum and natural gas. Automobiles, buses, trains, ships, submarines, airplanes and rockets can run on hydrogen. Hydrogen can also be converted directly to electricity by the fuel cells, with a variety of applications in transportation and stationary power generation. Metal hydride technologies offer a variety of applications in refrigeration, air conditioning, hydrogen storage and purification. Combustion of hydrogen with oxygen results in pure steam, which has many applications in industrial processes and space heating. Moreover, hydrogen is an important industrial gas and raw material in numerous industries, such as computer, metallurgical, chemical, pharmaceutical, fertilizer and food industries.
WHEC 2018 The 22nd World Hydrogen Energy Conference, WHEC 2018, will take place in Rio de Janeiro on 17-22 June 2018. Registration is now open.

4/10/2018 Hydrogen in Crystals This newly published book is devoted to a theoretical study of phase transformations in metal hydrides having a different crystal structure, as well as to an experimental study of their hydrogen capacity. It's authors are: Z.A. Matysina, S.Yu. Zaginaychenko, D.V. Shchur, A. Veziroglu, T.N. Veziroglu, M.T. Gabdullin, N.F. Javadov, Al. Zolotarenko, An. Zolotarenko. 3/1/2018 2017 HEF Power-To-Gas Contest - Rules & Guidelines Published The 2017 Hydrogen Student Design Contest challenges
student teams from around the world to design a "Power-to-Gas
System". This system uses electricity to produce
hydrogen for cross market uses including energy storage, ancillary
services, and transportation fuel.
Participating student teams will choose a site in their area, engage
their local electric and gas utilities, coordinate with regulatory
bodies and safety experts, and create educational materials,
including a short video. Registration
deadline is September 15, 2017, and interested students can sign up here

A contest for innovative ideas on expansion of hydrogen refueling infrastructure is organized by the Hydrogen Association of India (HAI), honoring Prof. T. N. Veziroglu. The inter-disciplinary teams of students from academic institutes/universities need to apply their creativity and academic skills in the areas of design, engineering, economics, and business science to recommend a solution to achieve the goal of clean hydrogen economy at an affordable cost.
The other rules, regulation and details of the contest is available at website: www.hai.org.in
This month, both UCF and the National Academy of Inventors (NAI) will
honor Muradov for his work in hydrogen and alternative fuel sources. On
April 5, Muradov will receive the Excellence in Research Award at UCF
and then on April 6, he will be inducted as a Fellow of the National
Academy of Inventors in Boston.
4/3/2017 The Destined Meeting with Pope Francisco!
IAHE Vice President Dr. Bolcich and Board of Directors Dr. Spazzafumo visited Pope Francisco to talk about their Association and the envisioned future they wish to accomplish using Hydrogen. Dr. Bolcich said "Today, 1st of June, together with Giuseppe and my wife Maggie, we had the opportunity to participate at the General Pope Audience in Vatican. We were located at the second row of the main *palco*. After the speeches and praying of Francisco and bishops and other members of the Catholic Church, Francisco made close contact with people in the *palco*.
