The National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science & Technology (AIST) in Japan and the Faculty of Energy and Environmental Engineering at The British University in Egypt, will contribute expertise to the Closing the Gap: A Global Perspective study.
Working alongside contributors from the UK, Netherlands, the US, Australia, and Brazil, the organisations will identify technologies in blue and green hydrogen, offshore wind, oil and gas electrification, direct air capture and carbon capture, utilisation and storage.
Initiated at the COP26 Summit in Glasgow last year (2021), the study will identify technology gaps and innovation priorities to accelerate an integrated Net Zero energy future.
Luca Corradi, Innovation Network Director at the Net Zero Technology Centre, said, “We are excited to have Japan’s National Institute for Advanced Industrial Science & Technology and the Faculty of Energy and Environmental Engineering at the British University in Egypt onboard.
“They both have a history of innovation and international collaboration, which will help provide a well-rounded view of the global energy system. Participating in the study is a massive opportunity for all partners to collaborate and identify the key technologies to enable the transition.
“The outcomes of the study will help inform national governments at COP27, where all countries must re-evaluate their Nationally Determined Contributions and deliver on previous commitments.”
The Japanese AIST joined forces with Toyota Motor Corporation and Toyota Central R&D Labs to develop technologies for the production, transportation and use of hydrogen in October 2021.
It was recently announced by Rystad Energy that Egypt was planning to release a $40bn national hydrogen plan to attract foreign investment.
