Hydrogenious joins EU Commission delegation to Japan and meets with Prime Minister Fumio Kishida

Tokio, Japan / Erlangen, Germany Dr. Andreas Lehmann, Chief Strategy Officer of Hydrogenious LOHC Technologies, joined EU Commissioner Kadri Simson as part of the official delegation on her recent visit to Japan. The forum provided a unique opportunity to meet face-to-face with key stakeholders from both sides – Japan and the EU – as well as representatives from politics and industry, and to discuss critical issues related to the hydrogen market.

A particular highlight was the meeting with Prime Minister Fumio Kishida. The participants discussed strategies to ensure fair competition in the development of the hydrogen economy. Key topics included technological openness and fostering innovation on both sides of the Pacific. Lehman also spoke with the government representatives about the common goal of promoting the emerging hydrogen market and how policy and regulation, as well as import technologies such as LOHC, ammonia and liquid hydrogen, can play a critical role.

Speaking at the EU-Japan High-Level Hydrogen Business Forum, Kadri Simson said:  “Hydrogen will be an internationally traded commodity, and close EU-Japan cooperation will be essential for promoting renewable and low-carbon hydrogen globally and ensuring standards and regulation converge.”
