Research and Development of Hydrogen Stations to Realize a Society with Sustainable Energy

Honda is conducting demonstration testing of hydrogen stations to locally generate and provide hydrogen using renewable energy from the region.

Since 2001, Honda has been researching and developing hydrogen generation from renewable energy, and in 2010, commenced demonstration testing in Los Angeles, USA, using its more efficient, unique "Power Creator" technology.

In 2012, Honda was commissioned by the Ministry of the Environment to install on Saitama Prefectural Office grounds, Japan's first solar hydrogen station equipped with "Power Creator" technology.

In 2014, Honda began demonstration testing with Iwatani Corporation, Saitama City and Kitakyushu City, on the world's first* Smart Hydrogen Station (SHS) that can generate, store and dispense hydrogen in a single package, furthering hydrogen-related technologies aiming to generate hydrogen with zero CO2 emissions.

SHS is currently installed at Honda's Wako headquarters, and at three installations nationwide (as of February 2016) is generating hydrogen using locally available solar- and waste-generated electricity.

  • SHS demonstration testing in Saitama City
  • SHS demonstration testing in Kitakyushu City
  • SHS installation at Honda's Wako headquarters

Power Creator: Honda’s Original High-differential-pressure Electrolyzer System Enabling Hydrogen Generation from Renewable Energy

To generate high-pressure hydrogen, conventional methods require mechanical compressors: Power Creator generates high-pressure hydrogen without the need for a compressor.

This reduces the energy needed for high-pressure electrolysis, enabling hydrogen generation powered by renewable energy such as solar power.

Through miniaturization and quiet operation, Honda has achieved a readily installable SHS package that can generate, store, and dispense hydrogen.
