Research Center for Hydrogen Industrial Use and Storage, Kyushu University
Jan. 27 Hydrogen Energy and Fuel Cell Forum in Kyushu & International Hydrogen Energy Development Forum; Jan. 27-28 Symposium & Joint Symposium
The Research Center for Hydrogen Industrial Use and Storage (HYDROGENIUS) at Kyushu University is engaged in cutting-edge research activities aimed at establishing safe hydrogen technologies to make a hydrogen-based society a reality while deepening basic and scientific knowledge about hydrogen. The center is also engaged in sharing our research expertise with industry, even outside of research and academic circles. As part of these efforts, we have held the Fukuoka Strategy Conference for Hydrogen Energy and the “International Hydrogen Energy Development Forum" every year since 2007. In recent years, we have held them concurrently with the Hydrogen Energy and Fuel Cell Forum in Kyushu hosted by the Kyushu Bureau of Economy, Trade and Industry.
At the forum on January 28, lectures were given by Kyushu University, the Agency for Natural Resources and Energy, New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO), and ENEOS Corporation, which continues to play a role in the hydrogen business on regional collaboration between industry, academia, and government toward the realization of a hydrogen society, METI initiatives, domestic trends and international cooperation, and other directions in hydrogen energy. Researchers from Japan and abroad presented their latest research and development findings at symposiums held on January 27–28 in each field. A total of approximately 760 people participated in the two-day forum and symposium.
