TOKYO, Sept. 26 -- NHK World issued the following news:
Representatives from countries around the world have set a goal of expanding annual global production of hydrogen to 90 million tons by 2030.
Government ministers and others from more than 20 countries have gathered in Tokyo on Monday. The conference is aimed at promoting the global utilization of hydrogen.
Hydrogen is expected to be a next-generation energy source that emits no carbon dioxide when burned.
The delegates agreed to increase investment in hydrogen production using renewable energy sources and other eco-friendly means in order to achieve the new target.
Japan's annual domestic hydrogen supply currently stands at about 2 million tons.
The new target is not without challenges, such as developing technologies to generate large amounts of hydrogen and building supply chains that include transportation and storage.
