Moreover, the organizer’s program called “Tokyo Future Tour” on the 1st floor of the West Exhibition Building, shows how Tokyo will change in the future with new types of mobility. DENSO will join this event and build a huge swing set in the shape of “H2” to convey an image of hydrogen energy to visitors. Electricity produced from energy generated by fully swinging on the swing will be converted into hydrogen, which can be stored for later use, by using DENSO’s solid oxide electrolysis cell (SOEC)*² system. Visitors can thus experience how energy can be used. At "Startup Future Factory," Japan Auto Parts Industries Association will host business matching and booth tours for member companies.https://www.japia.or.jp/topics_detail1/id=4135
*¹ The event organized by the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association, Inc. (JAMA) will be open to the press from Wednesday, October 25 to Thursday, October 26, previewed on Friday, October 27, and open to the public from Saturday October 28 to Sunday, November 5.
*² A SOEC is a unit that operates at high temperatures using a ceramic membrane as an electrolyte to electrolyze water vapor to produce hydrogen. There are other methods of producing hydrogen, such as alkaline water electrolysis in which an alkaline aqueous solution is used as an electrolyte, as well as proton exchange membrane (PEM) water electrolysis in which a polymer membrane is used as an electrolyte. The SOECs used in this demonstration require less electric energy for electrolysis than the other two types.
In the verification test jointly conducted by DENSO Fukushima Corporation and Toyota Motor Corporation since March of this year, PEM water electrolysis units have been used.
