Fuel Cell Power Systems Start Operations at Facilities in Fukushima Prefecture Using Hydrogen Produced from Renewable Energy
July 7, 2020
In accord with an agreement concluded with Fukushima Prefecture on June 19, 2020, to expand low-carbon hydrogen utilization, hydrogen produced under a NEDO project at the Fukushima Hydrogen Energy Research Field (FH2R) located in Namie Town of Fukushima Prefecture is being supplied to hydrogen fuel cell power systems installed at the Prefectural Azuma Sports Park located in Fukushima City and the J-Village sports training facility located in Naraha Town. On June 29, the fuel cell power systems started operations to provide a portion of the power supply for these two facilities.
As part of its demonstration testing for FH2R, NEDO will continue to supply hydrogen to users in Fukushima Prefecture and other areas.
