IPHE Forum Yokohama: Increasing Role of Hydrogen in the Economy
Yokohama City, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan | May 8, 2018
Many countries are implementing policies and taking action on Fuel Cells and Hydrogen (FCH). Numerous policy goals including climate change, clean air, and energy security are moving countries to develop electro-mobility that includes both “Electric Vehicles (EVs) and Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs)” and deploy clean hydrogen.
Learn about the expanding use of hydrogen in applications across industries both internationally and in Japan. The emphasis is on the “Dramatic Expansion of Hydrogen Use,” defined as Phase 1 of Japan’s Strategic Roadmap for Hydrogen and Fuel Cells.
