Japan – ENEOS and Toyota have partnered to explore the utilization and application of hydrogen energy at Woven City.
ENEOS and Toyota, together with Woven Planet, leading the Woven City project, intend to conduct testing and demonstration in areas related to a hydrogen-based supply chain, from production, delivery to usage of hydrogen, in and around Woven City. Through this effort, they aim to help achieve a carbon-neutral society by 2050 as Japan and many other countries around the world have committed.
Positioning hydrogen as one of the most viable clean energy sources in the future, Toyota has invested in hydrogen and fuel cell technology and its popularization through efforts to apply the technology in various mobility including passenger cars, commercial vehicles, industrial vehicles (e.g. forklifts), trains, and ships, as well as stationary generators.
At Woven City, the companies intend to promote carbon neutrality in everyday mobility, people’s lives, and within the infrastructure of the city itself as well as to raise awareness of hydrogen among resident families and visitors.
Woven City is pioneering a profound evolution in how societies of the future will live, work, and play. Three fundamental concepts are critical to its development; “Human-Centered” respect for individuals and prioritization of their needs and preferences; “Living Laboratory” which enables seamless real-world testing of new technologies such as hydrogen; and an “Ever-Evolving city” in which such new technologies and services continuously grow and improve.
