Toyota starts hydrogen cooperation with Eneos

Toyota and the Japanese energy company Eneos have entered into a partnership to advance hydrogen mobility. The core of the cooperation is the expansion of Toyota's future project Woven City into a hydrogen-based model city.

The goal for the model city Woven City at the foot of Mount Fuji is CO2 neutrality not only in everyday mobility, but in people's entire lives and in the urban infrastructure itself, Toyota says, with residents living " in harmony with nature and technology - smart, connected and sustainable."

Toyota and Eneos will collaborate to explore the use and application of hydrogen energy, specifically testing and demonstrating the supply chain - from production to delivery to use of hydrogen in and around Woven City.

Specifically, Eneos will build an H2 filling station in the immediate vicinity of the Woven City. Eneos already has experience with this; the group currently operates 45 hydrogen filling stations in Japan's four largest metropolitan areas. Eneos is also developing technologies to scale the production of CO2-free hydrogen - an aspect that will be tested in the pilot city.
