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.
Conferences & Webinars
Ammonia Energy Conferences offer attendees the opportunity to learn from and network with key technology and project developers. We host annual events in Australia and the United States, and we partner with other event organizers to support global programming all year round.
Our annual conferences also include workshops and committee meetings for AEA Members, bringing our members together and setting the agenda for the Ammonia Energy Association moving forward.
In addition to our annual conferences, we produce monthly webinars on topics of low-carbon ammonia production and the use of ammonia as a maritime fuel.
The AEA is seeking to facilitate the establishment of a globally harmonised Certification Scheme for Ammonia (the Certification Scheme) to support the development of a market for low- and zero-carbon ammonia.
While this initiative is led by AEA Members, the success of the Certification Scheme will depend on the participation of many strategic partners (AEA non-members) who will play crucial roles both in informing the design phase and in supporting the adoption phase.
To enable this, we have published a Discussion Paper designed to illustrate our initial thinking around an 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.
Based on Topsoe’s H2RETAKE™ technology, an ammonia cracking facility owned and run by Approtium will be built in Ulsan, South Korea. Approtium has already secured a supply of ammonia via an offtake agreement signed with Hyphen Hydrogen.
China is keeping pace with IEA predictions for electrolyzer installations, with as much as 55% of the world’s total capacity to be installed there by 2028. Coupled with strong wind-power resources, domestic manufacturing capabilities and multiple economic drivers to transition away from coal-based ammonia production, China is ideally positioned to speed up the deployment of renewable ammonia projects.
A research team from Griffith & Oxford Universities concludes that, with the right approach, multiple world-scale, renewable ammonia plants could operate on the Queensland coast, supporting the deep decarbonisation of the electricity grid. Flexible plants can provide “green ammonia value chain-based” demand response services, representing a potential answer to Australia’s winter energy problem.
