Japanese German Energy Day 2018
24. Oktober 2018, Tokyo
Japan and Germany both undergo significant shifts in energy policy directions: increase the usage of renewable energy, improve energy efficiency, reduce the reliance on fossil fuels and reduction in greenhouse gas emissions are ambitious aims to combat climate change and foster developments towards a sustainable and secure energy sector. Given that traditional measures might be insufficient over the long term, it will be crucial to pursue solutions through innovation including the development and diffusion of new technologies to reform the existing energy supply structure. One promising approach is the utilization of hydrogen due to the fact that it can be produced and used without emitting carbon dioxide and it is multiply deployable: as energy carrier, energy storage or alternate drive system.
Against this background, the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) and the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) host this year’s Japanese-German Energy Day on the “Perspectives for hydrogen in Germany’s and Japan’s future energy systems” on October 24, 2018. The event is jointly organized by the German Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Japan (AHK Japan) and adelphi and it aims to deepen the bilateral dialogue on energy issues, focusing on the future role of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies, by providing a platform to establish and deepen contacts and working relationships between German and Japanese experts and decision-makers in energy policy, research and business.
The Japanese-German Energy Day will take place back to back to the first Hydrogen Energy Ministerial Meeting organized jointly by the METI and the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) on October 23, 2018.
On behalf of the BMWi and the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI), we would like to cordially invite you to our conference and would highly appreciate your participation.
Participation in the event is free of charge but requires a registration here. The event language is English-Japanese (simultaneous interpretation).
