The ENERGY STORAGE SUMMIT JAPAN (ESSJ) will take place from 16 to 18 October 2018 in the lead market for hydrogen as an all-purpose medium. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe sets ambitious targets: the H2 production from renewable sources should increase to 5-10 million tons per annum by 2050 and costs should drop to 20% of today's levels.
As the WORLD of ENERGY STORAGE spinoff in Japan, the ESSJ 2018 will be organized for the fifth time. Its "Executive Roundtable" offers an exclusive German-Japanese exchange of top managers within the energy storage industry on 16 October.
In addition to the complete turnaround in the areas of mobility and infrastructure, along with the conventional energy supply of private houses, Japan intends to take over the global leadership role in the realization of the "hydrogen-based society", especially through exporting the technology (METI 2017).
To match this, the "Energy Storage & Smart Mobility Day" on 17 October provides an international comparison of the framework conditions for the energy (storage) economy, as well as the presentation of successful business models by Japanese and international companies, and presentations on smart mobility. Networking activities may be continued at the evening reception.
The site tour on 18 October will also be all about hydrogen technologies, with a test drive in Toyota's fuel cell vehicle Mirai, a visit to a hydrogen fuel station and a meeting on "Zero Emissions & Mobility" at the Nissan headquarters.
