U.S. Signs Agreement to Cooperate on Hydrogen, Fuel Cell Technologies

Representatives of DOE, Japan, and the European Union have signed a joint statement promising future cooperation on the technologies, which could bring significant benefits to the energy sector, the economy, and the environment.

The U.S. Department of Energy announced that U.S. Deputy Secretary of Energy Dan Brouillette, Japan's Minister of Economy, Trade, and Industry Hiroshige Seko, and European Union Commissioner for Climate Action and Energy Miguel Cañete have signed a joint statement promising future cooperation on hydrogen and fuel cell technologies.

The organizations say the technologies could bring significant benefits to the energy sector, the economy, and the environment.

They intend to explore how to best initiate and implement an effective framework for cooperation on hydrogen, possibly through developing a memorandum of cooperation in preparation for the 2nd Hydrogen Energy Ministerial Meeting, which will be held Sept. 25, 2019. The organizations would plan to work together and with other countries, to accelerate progress in hydrogen technologies globally. That memorandum would facilitate the development of concrete actions through cooperation in several areas that were listed in the Tokyo Statement that was released at the Hydrogen Energy Ministerial Meeting, held in Tokyo on Oct. 23, 2018"

  • cooperation on application of technologies and coordination on harmonization regulations, codes, and standards
  • promoting information sharing and international joint research and development emphasizing hydrogen safety and the infrastructure supply chain
  • study and evaluation of hydrogen's potential across sectors, including its potential for reducing CO2 emissions and other emissions
  • communication, education, and outreach
