Japan to make hydrogen major power source by 2030

Japan will aim to make hydrogen a power source viable enough to produce the output of more than 30 nuclear reactors by 2030.

To achieve that goal in its bid to reduce carbon emissions Japan will have to make a technology now in its infancy commercially viable at scale, as the world accelerates an energy transition to prevent the worst impacts of climate change. The government will provide 2 trillion yen ($19 billion) of funds to support efforts to make hydrogen viable as a fuel for electricity generators that burn without emissions.
