The goal is to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) significantly.
Three giant Japanese automakers, including Toyota, Honda and Nissan, in cooperation with a number of leading energy companies in the State Sakura to encourage the production of cars hydrogen fuel is environmentally friendly.
Not limited to the production car, a consortium of companies that signed the cooperation was also planned to build hydrogen refueling stations in the territory of Japan.
Known around 10 energy companies, including companies of natural gas refiner and distributor, will build about 100 refueling stations in 2015 in Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka, and Fukuoka.
As quoted from France24, a consortium of 10 companies it said in a statement, Friday, January 14, 2011, mentions that all three Japanese car manufacturers will begin producing new cars are equipped with Fuel Cell Vehicles (FCVs) this year.
For information, FCVs is a breakthrough technology to convert hydrogen into electric current and do not create pollution in the form of anything other than water vapor.
"Giant car manufacturer in Japan will continue efforts to reduce the cost of making the system to start FCVs before later marketed in Japan, especially in four major metropolitan areas, in 2015," they wrote through the same information.
With the aim of reducing the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) significantly, the resulting transport sector, manufacturers and suppliers of hydrogen fuel to work together to expand socialization and encourage the supply of hydrogen FCVs throughout Japan.
Unfortunately, the companies involved are still reluctant to open my mouth about these long-term project investment.
Although electric-based vehicles such as Nissan or Toyota Prius Leaf had been highlighted recently, cars with fuel cells remain a more powerful alternative. However, the high cost of production and can not be renewing natural resources to fuel a fundamental constraint.
Toyota is the pioneer who created the world's first hybrid car by combining the resources of petrol and electric motors. The company has expressed plans to release a hydrogen-fueled cars in 2015.
While Honda, in 2008, began marketing the FCX Clarity about 200 units, the car is rented to customers based in the U.S., Japan, and Europe in the near future.
