“MIRAI,TOYOTA FCV Toward Hydrogen Society" by Mr. Koichi Kojima, Project General Manager, Fuel Cell System Engineering & Development Division, R&D Group, TOYOTA MOTOR Corporation
Fuel-cell vehicles (FCVs) have been known as a solution for green transportation. Around the world, efforts are being made to harness the power of hydrogen. Recognizing hydrogen’s vast potential as a clean energy source,Toyota’s efforts developing FCV started in 1992. In 2014, Toyota started the sale of FCV for personal transportation, MIRAI, to the public in Japan, having received about 1500 orders in a month and its production will rapidly increase in coming years. In the presentation, we will hear business opportunities with FCV, required infrastracture toward the hydrogen society and outlook for global FCV sales.
Mr. Koichi Kojima entered Toyota Motor Corporation in 1981 immediately after graduating from Nagoya University Graduate School.
He has been responsible for the development of Toyota's FCVs and served as Fuel Cell Development Division General Manager since 2005 and has been serving as Project General Manager since 2015.
