New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO), Toyota Tsusho Corporation, NTT FACILITIES, INC., Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd., Hrein Energy Inc., Technova Inc., and Muroran Institute of Technology announce today they will start a "Power to Gas" hydrogen energy demonstration in Hokkaido in late November. This demonstration aims to develop a new energy system and business model, which improve the utilization of wind power, whose output power fluctuates depending on wind conditions, by effectively converting unstable part of the power to hydrogen for thermal application.

The partners held a commemoration ceremony today at the demonstration project site, Yuhigaoka Wind Farm "Furaibo" in Tomamae Town, Hokkaido.
