The NEDO-led consortium which besides Toyota Tsusho includes NTT, Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Flein Energy, Technoba Co. and the Muroran Institute of Technology, will establish a new business model where wind power will be converted into hydrogen leading to thermal energy. Specifically, the electric power system will be optimized by predicting the amount of electricity that can be sold using wind power generation equipment with large output fluctuations, if excess power will be converted to hydrogen and transported or stored, and utilized as fuel. The demonstration site will be in Tomamae-cho, Hokkaido.
