ASIA NEWS:

Toyota City, Japan, Oct 12, 2021 – (JCN Newswire) – The National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Toyota Motor Corporation (Toyota), and Toyota Central R&D Labs., Inc. (Toyota CRDL) announced today that they have commenced discussions on joint research aimed at accelerating development and implementing advanced technologies in the field of energy and the environment. The three parties have a strong desire for carbon neutrality. They will work together to accelerate the development and implementation of advanced technologies in energy and the environment.

Carbon neutrality means achieving net-zero CO2 emissions for the entire life cycle of a product in a recycling-based society–from its production, transportation, and use–followed by ensuring that it is recycled. To achieve carbon neutrality, it is important to know what kind of energy is being used and by whom.

Since energy conditions differ according to country and region, it follows that net-zero CO2 emissions can be achieved in different ways. The three parties will explore ways to increase the variety of energy options and technologies available. This is in addition to limiting the choices to one type of energy or one technology.

More specifically, AIST, Toyota, and Toyota CRDL, will discuss joint research on the following four topics:

Establishing energy scenarios for achieving carbon neutrality

Using energy models developed by AIST, the three parties will analyze the impact on energy use systems occasioned by future trends in energy-related technologies, energy environment policies, and other societal changes. They will examine various aspects, including predicted clean energy consumption, the implementation of new technologies and impact on the environment.

Establishing energy urban networks that realize both carbon neutrality and economic rationality

The three parties will propose a carbon neutral and cost-minimizing optimal urban energy structure that utilize renewable energies, and will also propose high-quality yet affordable energy infrastructure that makes use of electrification technologies developed for automobiles.

Developing high-efficiency in-vehicle solar power generation systems

The three parties will seek to popularize vehicles equipped with solar power generation systems, which convert light energy into electrical energy. They will work to improve the efficiency of solar power generation systems and solar batteries, and reduce costs.

Developing elemental technologies for the production, transportation, and use of hydrogen

The three parties will develop elemental technologies capable of resolving various issues related to the realization of a hydrogen society: technologies to produce hydrogen, technologies to transport hydrogen safely and at low costs (hydrogen carriers), and technologies to use hydrogen as energy.

AIST is one of the largest national research institutions in Japan. It is home to the Fukushima Renewable Energy Institute, as well as the Global Zero Emission Research Center. This institute conducts advanced research that aims at carbon neutrality.

Toyota and Toyota CRDL wish to see advanced technologies aimed at carbon neutrality implemented across society at the earliest opportunity. They believe collaboration between the academic, industrial, and public sectors is essential. AIST is exploring joint research.

Going forward, AIST, Toyota, and Toyota CRDL, intend to work closely together to explore, from a variety of different perspectives, the possibility of various technologies capable of contributing to the realization of carbon neutrality by 2050. They will also openly consider collaboration with like-minded partners and work to ensure that their joint research is implemented, widely adopted and established in society.
