We invite you to come to learn about Finland’s recently published National Hydrogen Roadmap and EU policies related. We have a deep-dive to Japan’s hydrogen strategy as well interesting ecosystems and company cases will be presented.

Finland is committed to become carbon-neutral by 2035. In order to succeed in this, energy, manufacturing and transportation sectors need to be decarbonized. One of the enablers is hydrogen and power-to-X solutions. Now there is a heavy focus in the research & development & innovation on hydrogen and power-to-X solutions

There are several hydrogen-focused research & development & innovation programs going on in Japan. The challenge of commercial viability is universal.

This webinar is a deep-dive to the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) led program for renewable energy based hydrogen production in Fukushima. The liquid hydrogen will then be land-transported to Tokyo. The target of the demo project is to materialize commercially viable CO2 free hydrogen production. Toshiba Energy System, Tohoku Electric Power, and Iwatani are involved in the project.
