Empowering Sustainable Economies

Welcome to the African Hydrogen Partnership (AHP), the only non-profit continent-wide hydrogen association in Africa.


Empowering Africa's Green Hydrogen Development

The African Hydrogen Partnership (AHP) is a non-profit association. It is the only continent-wide African umbrella association solely dedicated to the development of green and natural (native) hydrogen, hydrogen-based chemicals, fuel cell technology and related business opportunities in Africa. As a leading hydrogen energy association, we focus on advancing sustainable solutions to enhance access to clean energy and mobility.

The AHP represents the whole African continent and all African nations. To form the strongest possible international alliance for utilizing Africa's hydrogen potential and creating green wealth, organizations from anywhere in the world are welcome to join the AHP. The AHP is a diverse, international and democratic African organization governed by its members. The African Hydrogen Partnership (AHP) is incorporated as a non-profit Private Company Limited by Guarantee (Company No. 176378) in the Republic of Mauritius, a non-aligned country ideal for building constructive relationships across the entire continent - and bringing the Arabic North and Sub-Saharan African countries together.

African nations will gain many economic and environmental benefits from commercially feasible green hydrogen projects. Green African hydrogen will materially assist the World to decarbonise.

The African Hydrogen Partnership Charter

The AHP CHARTER expresses the most fundamental guiding principles of the AHP. The purpose of the AHP Charter aims at aligning the expectations of all AHP Members as well as all organizations and stakeholders interested in or cooperating with the AHP.

The AHP Members

  1. Support and strive to achieve the climate targets of the Paris Agreement as well as the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
  2. Promote Natural (Native) and Green Hydrogen as a clean, renewable and sustainable energy carrier and feedstock to achieve the transition to net zero emission societies.
  3. Recognize that hydrogen can be produced in many ways and that there are different carbon free/neutral hydrogen production pathways in order to enable a zero-emission society.
  4. Cooperate in the transition of energy generation, transportation, consumption and sector coupling to hydrogen, fuel cell and related technologies as well as the promotion of a strong African hydrogen industry incorporating these systems and technologies.
  5. Promote fair business practice and provide the necessary support to facilitate the establishment of African hydrogen value chains.


Accelerating Green Hydrogen Deployment


The main objective of the AHP is to promote, support and accelerate the deployment of Green and Natural (Native) Hydrogen, fuel cell technology as well as to improve access to (clean) energy and mobility in Africa by aligning the industry, renewable industry and financial industry community and hereby increasing the effectiveness of the representation of this community.

The Association will enable member companies to exchange views and ideas on economic, technical and other relevant social topics, including the treatment of political, legal and tax issues on a pan-African basis. It will enable them to communicate with the public, governments and administrative bodies with one voice. Within this context, the AHP is to position itself as the main association in Africa and at the African Union level, directly representing key industry leaders, SMEs, national and regional associations in the field of hydrogen and fuel cell technology and providing them with an expert platform.

The AHP’s objectives further include development and strengthening of advocacy and visibility by disseminating information and educating policy-makers, thereby generating support and positioning itself (the AHP) as the key catalyst and coordinator for achieving synergies with other policies, schemes and activities in or for Africa.
