Our member companies span the full value chain of ammonia energy, from decarbonized hydrogen and ammonia production, through safety, distribution, and trading, to power generation and energy storage. Our members include technology licensors, EPC firms, energy majors, maritime shipping lines, electricity and gas utilities, fertilizer producers, chemicals manufacturers, and project developers looking to produce future fuels.
What connects all of these companies is an interest in the decarbonization of ammonia production and its use as a sustainable energy commodity.
The Ammonia Energy Conference offers attendees the opportunity to learn from and network with key technology and project developers.
Beyond presenting the latest technical information, the event ultimately aims to accelerate the adoption of ammonia in a sustainable energy economy, with additional programming exclusively for AEA Members, and with the workshops of the Implementation Conference focused on setting the agenda for the Ammonia Energy Association moving forward.
The AEA is seeking to facilitate the establishment of a globally harmonised Certification Scheme for Low-Carbon Ammonia (the Certification Scheme) to support the development of a market for low- and zero-carbon ammonia.
The success of the Certification Scheme will depend on the participation of many strategic partners and (AEA non-members) who will play crucial roles both in informing the design phase and in supporting the adoption phase.
The AEA aims to formalize existing relationships and forge new links with like-minded organizations – international, regional, and sectoral; governmental, industrial, and academic – in order that relevant parties can be integrated meaningfully into the scheme’s development process.
To enable this, we have published a Discussion Paper designed to illustrate our initial thinking around a Low-Carbon Ammonia Certification Scheme and stimulate discussion of its potential merits, limitations, and design details.
The AEA invites any interested organization to provide feedback through this Certification Survey.
Total Eren will lead development of the H2 Magallanes project in southern Chile. Up to 10 GW of onshore wind capacity will power 8 GW of electrolysers, a desalination plant, an ammonia production plant and port facilities to export the product to local and global markets. At full capacity, 4.4 million tonnes of renewable ammonia will be produced every year. Although H2 Magallanes is still in the pre-feasability stage, it will be launched in 2025, with the aim to begin hydrogen electrolysis in 2027.
H2 Green will develop a renewable energy hub at the Port of Shoreham in West Sussex. The initial focus will be the electrification and use of hydrogen fuel in the Port’s vehicle fleet (heavy forklifts and trucks), before expanding to accommodate the ~800 heavy goods vehicles that enter the port daily. The second phase will be an ammonia import facility to meet growing demands for hydrogen fuel in the surrounds. In Australia, the Geelong Hydrogen Hub will be developed by CAC-H2, a developer who is also planning two carbon-negative, waste-to-ammonia projects in Australia. The Geelong Hub includes multiple, new-build infrastructure elements including import/export & cracking facilities. Similar to Shoreham, import of green ammonia to meet growing demand for hydrogen fuel is the second phase of the project.
This we week we explore four new announcements for financing ammonia energy solutions from Jupiter Ionics (modular 3rd generation synthesis), Hydrofuel (novel cracking technology), FuelPositive (green ammonia synthesis) and Nitricity (point-of-use green fertiliser).
