Bringing together more than 160 members, the French Association for Hydrogen and Fuel Cells (AFHYPAC) federates the players in the French hydrogen industry structured along the entire value chain: major industrial groups developing large-scale projects, SME-SMIs and innovative start-ups supported by laboratories and research centres of excellence, associations, competitive clusters and local authorities mobilised for the deployment of hydrogen solutions. Its ambition: to accelerate the development of hydrogen solutions to make the energy transition a success, boost the economy and create value locally to improve the quality of life for all.

Members of AFHYPAC aboard Energy Observer

“In the 16th century, Christopher Columbus, Vasco da Gama, and other major explorers were exploring new paths and discovering new lands. Today, Energy Observer is an incredible boat that will show the way to a cleaner world, where renewable energies are fully valued, and where hydrogen takes its place alongside other energy carriers.”

Philippe Boucly, President of AFHYPAC

“Energy Observer is the perfect demonstration that hydrogen allows for the integration of renewable energy into our daily lives. By travelling around the world using only renewable energies stored on board in the form of hydrogen, this vessel will complete a world premiere, and open the door to a new era without fossil fuels. Hydrogen is wind and sun stored to continuously power our homes, our offices, and our transport systems. The AFHYPAC supports this project and its team.”

Pascal Mauberger, Member of the Board of AFHYPAC
