The MAHE Constitution can be referred to here:
Malaysia responded to the globally anticipated energy security crisis and climate change by diversifying fuel-resources to include renewable and alternative energy, and developing green-energy technologies for the future. Fuel cell, using hydrogen energy, is an advanced green energy technology that has the potential to bring a clean, zero emission energy technology for a sustainable nation. The Blueprint for Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Industries in Malaysia released in 2017 by the Academy of Sciences Malaysia (ASM) is the result of collaborative discussions regarding the future of fuel cells and hydrogen energy with various stakeholders, including government agencies, industrial players, researchers and academia.

Thenceforth, Fuel Cell Institute (UKM) has led the initiative, together with researchers from other universities, to create a national-level association named The Malaysian Association of Hydrogen Energy (MAHE). This association was registered with The Registry of Societies Malaysia on Jan 10th, 2017 with the following objectives: (1) to assemble and consolidate researchers and practitioners of fuel cells and hydrogen energy in various scientific and engineering disciplines and from academia and industry together in a learned association, (2) to promote and facilitate interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research and collaboration on fuel cells and hydrogen energy in various scientific and engineering disciplines and from academia and industry, (3) to promote and represent fuel cells and hydrogen energy in the national, regional, and international forums, (4) to promote hydrogen technology as a viable economic alternative to carbon-based technology, (5) to meet and exchange scientific and engineering knowledge and views in order to advance fuel cell and hydrogen technology, (6) to maintain links and relationships with other learned societies, and (7) to publish advances in fuel cells and hydrogen energy in high-impact academic journals. MAHE highlights the importance of bringing stakeholders from across the board together in order to realize the effective implementation of research, development, and deployment of the flagship program for fuel cells and hydrogen energy in Malaysia.
