12th German-Japanese Economic Forum

Decarbonization of Energy Supply and Mobility - Hydrogen and Electric Transport Systems as Solutions?

Wednesday, 25 April 2018, Hall 27


Long-term decarbonization of the global economy is the stated objective of the Paris Climate Agreement, which has been ratified by both Japan and Germany. Hydrogen is one possible approach to this challenge, particularly in the transport sector, which accounts for about a fifth of both countries’ CO2 emissions. Electrification and digitization, too, have a part to play in helping to make mobility cleaner and more future-proof, especially in megacities. Strategies and technologies in these key areas will be discussed by experts from industry and government at the 12th German-Japanese Economic Forum, one of the main discussion and contact platforms for German and Japanese industry at HANNOVER MESSE.


  • Challenges of a Future Sustainable Energy Supply in Germany and Japan – H2 as a Solution?
  • Electric Transport Systems and Digitization of Transportation in Tomorrow’s Megacities

It will be staged by Deutsche Messe in partnership with ECOS Consult and the German Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Japan.

Cooperation partners: DJW (Deutsch-Japanischer Wirtschaftskreis) , JETRO (Japan External Trade Organization), Tobias Renz Fair PR (Group exhibit Hydrogen, Fuel Cells & Batteries)

As a lead-in to the forum, Deutsche Messe will be running special tours of HANNOVER MESSE for attendees. The tours will take in highlights in the key forum theme areas of hydrogen/fuel cells, electric transport systems and digitization of mobility.
