- With the aim of generating synergies in the defense of the energy sector, the Spanish Hydrogen Association (AeH2) and TECNIBERIA have signed a Collaboration Agreement.
- Respect for the environment, promoting the technological development of the business fabric, and the penetration of renewable hydrogen is among the main objectives.
Madrid–The Spanish Hydrogen Association (AeH2), in order to generate synergies in the defense of the interests of the energy sector and the projection of companies, has signed a Collaboration Agreement with TECNIBERIA through its Industry and Energy Commission.
The representatives of both associations, Javier Brey, president of AeH2, and Pablo Bueno, president of TECNIBERIA, have been in charge of signing the agreement in order to collaborate in the field of the energy transition.
The determining point of cohesion between both associations are their common objectives, focused on promoting the technological development of the business fabric, respecting the environmental balance, and helping to increase the penetration of the use of renewable hydrogen. The Spanish Hydrogen Association is the voice of the sector in Spain, representing more than 200 partners from the entire hydrogen value chain. For its part, TECNIBERIA is structured in five committees that represent the activity of the member companies: Civil, Building and Urban Agenda, Industry and Energy, Environment and Technological Services.
Along these lines, AeH2 and TECNIBERIA seek with this agreement to promote the professional development of their companies and to collaborate in the areas of the energy transition and the promotion of hydrogen. And it is that “hydrogen can be transported, stored and distributed, and used as an alternative fuel for transportation (air, naval, land), as an alternative to natural gas, as a raw material, or as an industrial fuel to produce high heat temperature; and, obviously, it can be used to produce electricity again when there is no renewable resource, thus contributing to the management of the electricity system, starting from a long-term and large-scale energy storage ”, said Javier Brey, president of the AeH2.
For his part, Pablo Bueno, president of TECNIBERIA, declared that “the signing of this agreement is a recognition, by both associations, of the need to continue collaborating to promote the knowledge and study of Hydrogen as a new energy vector and the opportunities that open up for various industrial sectors and for Engineering to lead the energy change ”.
This agreement is a boost for joint activities that allow the analysis of issues of special interest to the sector and determines new challenges to be achieved.

About AeH2 (www.aeh2.org)
The Spanish Hydrogen Association (AeH2), a non-profit organization, is the voice and reference agent for the hydrogen sector in Spain. It has worked since its foundation in 2002 to promote and drive the development and growth of hydrogen technologies in Spain, with the aim of strengthening and enhancing the national industrial fabric; building, for this, a favorable environment for the development of hydrogen in our country and achieve a strong national industry in the international arena.
AeH2 represents more than 200 partners from the entire hydrogen value chain, including renewable promoters, equipment, and component manufacturers, engineering and EPC, Oil & Gas, industrial gases, transport, organizations linked to the sector, and many other organizations. It has among its partners the most active companies, institutions, and researchers in Spain in these technologies, who share its interest in achieving the main purpose of the association. Among the initiatives promoted by AeH2 is the Spanish Technological Platform for Hydrogen and Fuel Cells (PTE HPC), a project supported by the Ministry of Science and IInnovation. In addition, AeH2 is in the process of preparing the Hydrogen Industry Sector Agenda in collaboration and support of the Ministry of Industry,
