(Project Professor, Clean Energy Research Center, University of Yamanashi)


In this area, we will contribute to the realization of a hydrogen society by developing advanced technologies for the production of hydrogen, which is essential for achieving carbon neutrality in 2050, through water electrolysis using electricity derived from renewable energy sources, and its storage and utilization. The projects in this area will target the development of technologies to break through current bottleneck issues in an innovative manner, the creation of new concepts, and research and development for the practical application of these technologies, utilizing seeds from academia. The projects will promote integrated research and development by conducting not only basic research on elemental technologies but also evaluation of materials and prospects for scale-up. We will promote seamless and integrated research and development. The program also aims to foster human resources with broad perspectives and development capabilities.
