The Ministers and Delegates responsible for coordination of hydrogen energy policy within their respective countries met in Tokyo, Japan on 25 September 2019 to discuss strategies for cooperation toward the development of hydrogen energy. Over 30 countries and organizations attended the meeting, underscoring continued and growing momentum toward the wider production and use of hydrogen in the world.
Hydrogen gas is the perfect green fuel – it can be extracted from water and is non-polluting. But although hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe, it doesn’t naturally occur in large quantities as a gas on Earth.
It has not previously been done in Dutch airspace: NLR is flying a hydrogen-powered drone. This is a step towards sustainable aviation. Additionally, market parties will be able to follow these footsteps quickly and fly hydrogen-powered drones safely in the Netherlands.
Solar Thermochemical Hydrogen Research and Development
Dr. Tatsuya Kodama, Professor of the Faculty of Engineering / Institute of Science and Technology, Niigata University, is developing the technologies to produce clean hydrogen via thermochemical water splitting utilizing high-temperature solar heat obtained by concentrating sunlight with reflective mirrors. He is currently participating in a large-scale demonstration project of a hydrogen production system utilizing solar heat in Australia.
