The Embassy of Japan announced it has, in collaboration with Japanese organizations of the region, designated February-April 2022 as the “India-Japan Clean Hydrogen Month” in order to attract further investment and to resolve technical and economic issues obstructing the utilization of hydrogen.
Under the initiative, the two sides will hold intensive hydrogen-related seminars during this period. The idea is to present the potential of hydrogen business in India and Japan’s advanced hydrogen technology to all the stakeholders in public and private sectors from both the countries.
The series of seminars — that will promote public-private partnerships in the field of hydrogen energy — will begin with the “CII-JETRO Green Hydrogen Dialogue” on 24 February with speakers from Asahi Kasei, Toshiba, Mitsubishi Power, Marubeni, Adani, and Reliance.
This will be followed by the 4th India – Japan Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Workshop on 4 March, with the theme – Hydrogen production and power generation technologies of both countries and International Hydrogen Supply Chain with India as a Hub.
A Japan-India Hydrogen Seminar will also be held in late March focusing on the potential of hydrogen business in India and Japan’s efforts in technology development in this area.
