Fukuoka Prefecture and Commercial Japan Partnership Technologies Corporation have entered a partnership agreement that includes jointly implementing initiatives to expand the adoption of fuel cell electric vehicles for vehicles that underpin our daily lives in the logistics industry, public transportation, and official government use. The aim is to advance the development of a hydrogen society to achieve carbon neutrality.Specific initiatives under this partnership include working to further expand the use of FC mobility, starting with the adoption of light-duty FC electric trucks by logistics operators this financial year. In addition to increasing the adoption of light-duty FC electric trucks for distributing food, daily necessities, and other goods, the partnership will consider and plan a staged expansion of FC mobility over the medium to long term. This will include use of fuel cell electric vehicles for official public duties such as garbage compactor trucks (trash collection) and ambulances. It will also include the adoption of large FC electric buses for regional transportation and small FC electric buses in regions with smaller populations. Finally, it will include development of infrastructure, etc. designed for heavy-duty FC mobility options, including using long-haul trucks on main arterial routes.Starting in Fukuoka Prefecture, which has among the largest number of trucks in western Japan and where hydrogen is already in use, and looking to expand across Kyushu, Fukuoka Prefecture and CJPT will work together to develop a practical and sustainable hydrogen society.
