Energy is the foundation that supports industry and society. In order to realize a sustainable society, we aim to develop materials that enable the promotion of renewable energy and energy saving and devices that use them. In the energy creation field, we are developing low-cost, high-performance electrodes. In the energy transportation and storage field, we are working on research and development of safe and highly efficient systems and materials that use hydrogen as an energy carrier.
