Who We Are
The Ammonia Energy Association is the global agent of collective action for the ammonia energy industry by creating, collecting, organizing, and disseminating relevant knowledge for the responsible use of ammonia in a sustainable energy economy.
Originally, our work consisted of convincing people that ammonia could be used for energy at all. Now, companies and governments across the globe are analyzing ammonia within their portfolio of clean energy technologies.
A greater challenge confronts us as we aim to accelerate the pace at which clean ammonia energy is created. We are scaling up our work to match the technological readiness, political necessity, social imperative, and commercial opportunity for ammonia energy.
Join us and help us accelerate the adoption of clean ammonia energy within a sustainable energy economy.
Our member companies span the full value chain of ammonia energy, from decarbonized hydrogen and ammonia production, through safety and distribution, to power generation and energy storage.
What connects all of these companies is an interest in the use of ammonia in a sustainable energy economy.
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.
NH3 Event Europe Foundation and the Arab Fertilizer Association (AFA) will join forces in NH3 Arab Events to host two digital events, on December 8 and 9, 2020, on the topic of green NH3 in the Arab world. Our aim of organizing these events is to build knowledge and share information about green ammonia possibilities in the Arab world.
Last week the Sydney Morning Herald featured this headline: “Fortescue to take on fossil fuel giants with expansion into green energy.” Bold words, but it turns out the headline does not overstate Fortescue’s ambitions for its new business, Fortescue Future Industries (FFI). “FFI will finance, develop and operate renewable energy projects including green hydrogen and green ammonia plants,” the accompanying story says, with the “aim to build 235 gigawatts of installed energy capacity.”
If ammonia is to be introduced into the energy system as a CO2-free fuel, its cost must be at least competitive with that of other CO2-free fuels such as CO2-free hydrogen. In the discussion below I consider the cost aspect of CO2-free ammonia. To state my conclusion at the beginning, the cost of CO2-free ammonia can be less than 30 yen/Nm3-H2, which is the 2030 cost target for hydrogen energy set by the Japanese government in its “Basic Hydrogen Strategy” for introducing hydrogen energy into Japan.
