The climate crisis requires urgent action to transform our entire economic and social system towards net-zero. International cooperation, and partnership between governments, science, industry, and civil society are vital to this effort, especially to the transformation of our energy systems. Japan was the first country worldwide to introduce a national hydrogen strategy in 2017 with the goal to facilitate a global hydrogen supply chain. Germany, as one of the pioneers in a green energy transition, has published a national hydrogen strategy in 2020 with a strong focus on green hydrogen. The decarbonization of the industrial sector with the help of hydrogen is one of the cornerstones in the national strategies of Japan and Germany in order to achieve climate neutrality by 2050 and 2045, respectively.

In addition to the Energy Partnership of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action and the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, the scientific dialogue has been intensified through the German Centre for Research and Innovation Tokyo (DWIH Tokyo), and the German-Japanese Energy Transition Council (GJETC).

On March 1st, a keynote lecture and discussion between two of the most relevant experts in this field from Germany and Japan will be streamed live on the DWIH Youtube channel: Dr. Felix Chr. Matthes, Research Coordinator for Energy and Climate Policy at the Öko-Institut – Institute for Applied Ecology, will provide an overview of the latest developments in the field of hydrogen ramp-up in Germany, followed by comments and discussions with Prof. Takao Kashiwagi of the Institute of Innovative Research, Tokyo Institute of Technology.
