About

On October 29–30, 2019, the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization will hold the 10th German-Japanese Environment and Energy Dialogue Forum in collaboration with the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety and the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.

The forum has been held since 2007 to introduce advanced research and development and related activities in energy and environmental fields carried out in Japan and Germany. It has provided opportunities to open up possibilities for collaboration between Japan and Germany.

During the 10th forum, participants will exchange information that focuses on decarbonization of energy systems. Topics will cover trends in and progress of technologies that will enable decarbonization, such as using hydrogen as well as heat generated from unutilized energy and biomass.
