Japanese consortium to develop hydrogen technologies

Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions, Tohoku Electric Power, Tohoku Electric Power Network, Iwatani and Asahi Kasei have joined forces to advance renewable hydrogen technologies.

Together, the five companies will work together to further heighten system control and water electrolysis, to help meet growing demands and reduce Japan’s greenhouse gas emissions.

Throughout the project, the consortium will look at power-to-gas, using hydrogen to enable large-scale, long-term energy storage. Throughout the course of the project, Toshiba ESS will supervise the overall project and the hydrogen energy management system.

Commenting on the project Yoshihisa Sanagi, General Manager of the Hydrogen Energy Business Division at Toshiba ESS, said, “It is a great honour to contribute to the formulation of the hydrogen supply chain in Fukushima. We will continue to support expanding hydrogen energy for a low carbon society through our hydrogen-related technologies and solutions,” he continued.
