Panasonic to produce renewable electricity with pure hydrogen fuel cell generators; unveils plans RE100 factory with full-scale use of hydrogen

Panasonic wants to use an in-house power generation system that combines pure hydrogen fuel cell generators and photovoltaic generators to produce 100% renewable electricity.

The electronics company today (May 24) unveiled its plans which are believed to be the world’s first attempt to create an “RE100 factory” through the full-scale use of hydrogen.
