PATH's Mission

The Partnership for Advancing the Transition to Hydrogen (PATH), a 501(c)(6) organization, was established in 2002 in collaboration with the governments and national hydrogen associations of Canada, Japan and the United States. Its mission is to spread a consensus vision of the hydrogen economy globally and facilitate its implementation. Today, 20 associations and partnering organizations, across 5 continents belong to PATH, representing 79% of the world's GDP, 40% of the global population and a majority of the world's interest in hydrogen.

As countries and economies are beginning to take the first steps along this commercialization road, Partnership for Advancing the Transition to Hydrogen (PATH) seeks to develop an international community of interest in hydrogen to share knowledge, demonstrate that hydrogen systems are safe, reliable and affordable, and meet the unique requirements that each country may impose on these systems.

Interested in becoming a partner organization of PATH? Partnership is free of charge. Find out more here.

PATH-Report on the State of Hydrogen Worldwide

Many countries around the world are working to build a clean and secure energy future. Stakeholders of a global hydrogen economy need to understand the developments related to hydrogen energy and current events that are shaping the process. The Partnership for Advancing the Transition to Hydrogen (PATH) has begun to facilitate such an understanding by producing the report: "PATHways: Assessing Progress in the Global Hydrogen Industry".
