Japan as it is.

The news coming from Japan is indicative of how the country is most advanced in the use of hydrogen technologies in real life. Hydrogen engines have a long and difficult history, everything changed when everyone thought about reducing carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere, because the only by-product of their work is ordinary water. Power plants using technical hydrogen as a fuel in Japan have been operating since 1983. Thanks to large-scale government subsidies, there were already more than 120,000 full-fledged autonomous sources of energy supply for households based on fuel cells in 2014, and according to forecasts, as technologies become cheaper (mass production, standardization) and their self-sufficiency reaches more than 5 million by 2030.
A source of cheap hydrogen based on renewable energy will fill the missing puzzle for the formation of a new concept for the development of Japan as an advanced state and an illustrative example of the benefits of using hydrogen for other countries. Formation of new standards and requirements for the environmental performance indicator for all sectors of the world economy. Japan’s competitive advantage lies in the presence of its own reserves of geothermal energy and proximity to the huge reserves of such energy in the Kuril region. According to the agreement signed at the Eastern Economic Forum in the fall of 2017, Kawasaki Heavy Industries should update the feasibility study for the project to create a hydrogen production plant in the Russian Far East using power-to-gas technology, but it is possible that the update should be related to the production of green hydrogen based on renewable geothermal energy. Especially considering the expertise of Kawasaki Heavy Industries in the manufacture of medium power turbines that meet the requirements of modular power generation in confined spaces.It is a pity that political and other disagreements, which are certainly important, are holding back the solution of global universal human problems, which are very acute for Japan itself. Hydrogen technologies are a renaissance of Japan’s new economy, an opportunity to re-establish itself as a country that sets new standards for the new economy and the world.
