The Governor of Tokyo is planning to turn the 2020 Olympics a legacy for hydrogen energy. “The first Tokyo Olympics, 50 years ago, left a bullet-train system as a legacy. I want to leave a hydrogen society as a legacy for the next Tokyo Olympics,” Gov. Yoichi Masuzoe said in an interview. The plan is to develop the system to power Olympic buildings and transportation systems by hydrogen, expected to cost Tokyo around $330 million through 2020. As part of the initiative, thousands of hydrogen-powered cars, buses will be deployed around the Olympic Village, including a network of fueling stations. Furthermore, Japanese authorities are also considering building a pipeline to transport hydrogen. The broader green development plan of Japan is expected to reduce its reliance on imported fossil fuels.
