Toyota to Continue Providing Residential Fuel Cell Cogeneration System for Government Project
Tokyo — TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION (TMC) announced today that it plans to continue providing its city-gas-powered 1-kW residential fuel cell cogeneration system to Toho Gas Co., Ltd. (Toho), which is participating in the 2007* Large-Scale Stationary Fuel Cell Demonstration Project of Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) by installing and monitoring the system in ordinary homes.
TMC’s residential fuel cell cogeneration system combines a stationary fuel cell—jointly developed with Aisin Seiki Co., Ltd. (Aisin)—and a hot water storage tank. TMC will manufacture 28 units of the system for Toho, which plans to install them in homes in three prefectures (Aichi, Gifu and Mie) of Japan’s Tokai District to collect data for a two-year period ending in March 2010.
TMC has positioned global environmental preservation as a priority management issue in terms of its corporate social responsibility and has been actively developing technologies and marketing products that will help solve environmental problems. TMC’s continuing research and development of residential fuel cell cogeneration systems is part of this effort.
