Established in 2004, the AEA membership includes 140 corporations around the world; in 2020 it launched its first regional arm, AEA Australia. Among other initiatives, the AEA is seeking to facilitate the establishment of a globally harmonised Certification Scheme for Low-Carbon Ammonia. More information is available at ammoniaenergy.org.
