2. Hydrogen Energy
The oil industry produces and consumes a large amount of hydrogen at oil refineries, and operates disaster resilient gas stations and distribution infrastructure of oil products nationwide. With the aim of building hydrogen supply infrastructure by capitalizing on the oil industry’s re-sources, JPEC engages in the development of technologies for highly-efficient hydrogen production that utilizes the existing hydrogen production facilities at oil refineries. JPEC also promotes development of technologies for putting in place hydrogen supply infrastructure and hydrogen stations which are necessary for the spread of Fuel Cell Vehicles (FCVs).
