Japan's Global Act for Hydrogen and Ammonia Value Chains

[Impact LIVE] Japan's Global Act for Hydrogen and Ammonia Value Chains

Date & Time: 15:00 - 17:30, GMT+9, May 30 Tuesday

Format: Digital Conference (Zoom Webinar)


Japan is to revise its hydrogen strategy by the end of May with an ambitious target to boost annual supply to 12 million tonnes by 2040. The government has unveiled a proposed draft of the Green Transformation (GX) Basic Policy, which outlines a roadmap for 150 trillion yen (over USD 1.1 trillion) of public - private financing aimed at achieving carbon neutrality and contributing to the energy transition. Japan plans to invest $60 billion, with over one-third of the funding earmarked for establishing clean hydrogen and ammonia value chains to enhance energy supply security and achieve carbon neutrality. While some of the funds will be used domestically, more will be invested overseas, for example, to produce hydrogen in Australia or the Middle East, which will then be transported to Japan for storage and use. During this webinar, our discussions will be centered around Japan's hydrogen incentive plan to explore opportunities for collaboration in the hydrogen industry value chain between Japan and other countries.


200+ hydrogen policymakers, investors, developers, financiers, hydrogen & ammonia chain partners and researchers.
