Nine private companies in Japan engaged in the construction and expansion of a hydrogen society announced that they are launching a new preparatory committee called “Japan Hydrogen association (JH2A)” to promote the formation of a hydrogen supply chain and global partnerships in the hydrogen sector.

With hydrogen anticipated to play an important and central role in curbing global warming, Japan expects to take the lead globally. By establishing a hydrogen society as well as partnering with various stakeholders, JH2A will look to cultivate the hydrogen industry and promote initiatives toward its development. Working together with other companies, local governments and organizations who are willing to support such initiatives, the preparatory committee aims to establish the new organization at the beginning of December.

Members of the preparatory committee (in alphabetical order); *indicates companies with secretarial roles: ENEOS Corporation; Iwatani Corporation*; Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd.; Kobe Steel, Ltd.; MITSUI & CO., Ltd.; Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group, Inc.*; The Kansai Electric Power Company, Inc.; Toshiba Corporation; and Toyota Motor Corporation*.

The new Japan Hydrogen association will partner and collaborate with existing businesses and organizations as it works toward constructing the hydrogen value chain. JH2A will create plans on providing functions to promote initiatives, coordinate with external stakeholders, and conduct research.
