Welcome to Hydrogen Ireland

We aim to promote the role of hydrogen and fuel cells to enable them to become key components of our future low carbon economy on the island of Ireland. We provide a clear, informed and current view on best practice for hydrogen technologies. We engage the governments both sides of the border to develop policy and support for the inclusion of hydrogen, and its related equipment, within this energy transition. We wish to facilitate public and business awareness of the potential of hydrogen via showcasing and demonstration of the latest technology. We expect this to create new high-tech jobs and skill sets in all areas of society to enable the green economy. We look forward to hearing from you through any of the communication channels on this site.

Hydrogen Facts

Hydrogen is right at the forefront of a revolution within the energy industry and for good reason. It is one of the most versatile elements and is everywhere around us – here are some facts on this exciting species: Hydrogen is colourless, odourless and tasteless gas which has the chemical formula H2 and is undetectable

What Is A Hydrogen Fuel Cell?

A fuel cell is a cell that provides an electric current from a chemical reaction. Hydrogen fuel cells are just fuel cells that use hydrogen to provide this electric current.   HFCVs differ from conventional engines. Rather than using gasoline or diesel as a fuel, they combine hydrogen and oxygen to produce electricity which runs
