Hydrogen Energy Solution MOU in Indonesia
Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Corporation (Toshiba ESS)
announced their conclusion of a memorandum of understanding (MOU)
with Badan Penkajian dan Penerapan Teknologi (BPPT), on the
implementation of H2One™, an autonomous off-grid hydrogen energy
system based on renewable energy and the use of hydrogen as a fuel
for power generation in Indonesia on 31 August 2018.
Indonesia is faced with the challenge of supplying stable and
low-cost energy for each of its many islands, therefore has the ‘’
RUPTL’’ power supply business plan which aims to increase the total
power generation capacity rate of renewables from 12.52% to 23% by
H2One™ is an integrated system that uses a renewable energy source
to electrolyze hydrogen from water, and stores and uses the hydrogen
in fuel cells to provide stable delivery of CO2-free,
environmentally-friendly electricity and hot water. One of the
application of H2One™ is the “Off-grid solution,” which can help
realize a sustainable society. This distributed energy system allows
the supply of clean and stable energy, without influence from the
weather, to islands currently reliant on diesel and other generating
systems such as thermal power.
Toshiba ESS and BPPT conduct studies before implementation of the
H2One™ and aim to install the first system by 2022.
Toshiba ESS has delivered “H2One™” in a hydrogen project in Scotland
and throughout Japan. Toshiba ESS will continue to promote “H2One™”
toward a hydrogen economy in Indonesia and other countries.
Toshiba Africa has partnered up with ESI Africa ‘Africa’s Power
Journal’ which is best known as the portal of choice for Africa’s
energy and power utility market. ESI Africa is an online news and
journal portal that provides news updates and information about and
