MHPS to Exhibit at the Japan Pavilion at COP25 in Madrid, Spain from December 2
Presentation of Clean Hydrogen Fuel Power Generation Technologies

YOKOHAMA, Japan, Dec 2, 2019 - (JCN Newswire) - Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Ltd. (MHPS) will have an exhibit at the Japan Pavilion, an official event booth during the 2019 UN Climate Change Conference (COP 25)(1) taking place in Madrid, Spain.


Hydrogen Gas Turbine


Fuel Cell


The event will run for two weeks from December 2 to December 13, and will introduce Japan's cutting-edge environmental technologies to the world. MHPS will present model exhibits of clean power generating technologies using hydrogen as fuel (hydrogen gas turbines and fuel cells system).

Hydrogen gas turbines are a cutting-edge, clean power generating technology that supports Japan's 3E+S policy(2), promotes carbon-free or low-carbon energy to achieve a hydrogen society, and contributes to the conservation of the global environment. By switching from conventional natural gas to hydrogen as fuel, only water is generated after combustion, reducing greenhouse gas emissions. MHPS has already established the technology for large gas turbines fired with a mix of 30% hydrogen and 70% natural gas, and is currently pursuing a project to convert a 440 MW natural gas-fired GTCC power plant facility in the Netherlands to a 100% hydrogen-fired plant, scheduled to begin operations in 2025.

Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC) offer high-efficiency power generation and reduce CO2 emissions, making the technology an effective option for distributed power source or cogeneration systems. One of MHPS' MEGAMIE hybrid systems combining SOFC and micro gas turbines (MGT) has been in commercial operation at the Marunouchi building of Mitsubishi Estate Co., Ltd. since March 2019, supplying electric power and heat.

MHPS, by stimulating demand for the utilization of hydrogen through events such as this, and driving the establishment of an international supply chain to produce, carry, and store hydrogen, is helping to mitigate climate change and facilitate the realization of a hydrogen society.

(1) The Conference of the Parties (COP) is the meeting of parties to the 1992 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), held annually since 1995.
(2) 3E+S is the fundamental concept for Japan's energy policy, comprising Energy Security, Economic Efficiency, Environment, and Safety.
