Japan and Norway — strengthening cooperation and trade
Commercially, there are strong bonds in shipping, seafood, energy and technology between the two countries. “Norway is very technologically advanced when it comes to renewable energy and hydrogen for example, and we are now looking upon Norway’s innovative technology and clean energy with admiration and inspiration,” Tauchi said.
More specifically, there is an increasing interest from Japan in Norway’s hydrogen technology. The Nordic country has been a leader in this field and is looking to share the knowledge with the rest of the world. “Norway should be the first 100 percent green nation with zero emission solutions in all sectors. To achieve this, green hydrogen is an important piece of the puzzle,” Vegard Frihammer, manager and founder of Greenstat AS noted.
