The cities of Yokohama and Kawasaki reached an agreement on Tuesday to work together to use hydrogen and other next-generation energy resources more extensively to maintain and upgrade their industrial competitiveness, while realizing carbon neutrality in waterfront areas that play central roles in their respective local economies.

“For Kawasaki, which aims to have a base for supplying carbon-neutral energy resources, mainly hydrogen, it is important to partner with Yokohama, as it hosts many enterprises and could generate large demand,” Kawasaki Mayor Norihiko Fukuda said in a press conference on the same day. “We would like to proceed with efforts between local governments and private companies.” “As a mode area for building Japan's largest supply chain for hydrogen and others, we will promote industry-government-academia cooperation,” said Yokohama Mayor Takeharu Yamanaka.

The agreement indicates that Kawasaki and Yokohama will work hand in hand to develop a system for supplying hydrogen and other energy resources, stimulate demand and carry out research and test projects.
