A lot of researches have been done in order to reduce CO2 production from human activities. One of big research trends is a realization of hydrogen energy society which enables low carbon society. In this research center, the following research areas have covered to embed the hydrogen energy in human society, (1) Hydrogen production without CO2 production, (2) Transportation of hydrogen, (3) Energy production from hydrogen, (4) Highly efficient energy social system, such as CO2-free building, home, and factory. These researches have been done in this research center with close collaboration. The object of this research center is the realization of hydrogen society leading to reduction of CO2 production.
