Toward a future powered by the cleanest energy imaginable

Imagine a sustainable world, one in which humans have reduced almost all impact on the environment. One option for realizing such an ideal future is to use clean and convenient hydrogen energy. At Honda, we see the hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicle (FCV) as the ultimate clean car. In addition to marketing the Clarity Fuel Cell, we are also broadening our technology and product development efforts to bring the power of hydrogen energy to every corner of people’s lives.

Generate, use, and get connected with hydrogen energy—all
with Honda products

Fuel cell vehicles (FCVs) produce absolutely zero carbon emissions during use. But to make FCVs the cleanest cars in the true sense of the word, we also need to eliminate the carbon emissions that come from manufacturing hydrogen, the fuel they run on. Concurrent with the Clarity Fuel Cell's release, Honda reached two other important milestones: We announced the Smart Hydrogen Station (SHS) and launched the Power Exporter 9000.
The SHS is an appliance that generates zero-carbon hydrogen from renewable energy sources such as solar and wind. The Power Exporter 9000, meanwhile, is an external power feeding device that uses electricity generated by an FCV to power electrical and electronic devices outside the vehicle, allowing users to take advantage of hydrogen energy wherever they go.
We believe that equipping our customers to generate, use, and get connected with hydrogen will bring us ever closer to a society powered by hydrogen, an ideal future we all dream of.

Smart Hydrogen Stations spreading across Japan

The SHS empowers communities to generate energy locally using their own resources, as it is compatible with a variety of energy sources, from solar photovoltaics to waste-to-energy to biomass. Its adoption is spreading across Japan in an aim to create the ideal energy future with low-carbon hydrogen.

User’s Voice!

We asked the people in charge of SHS in companies, organizations, and local governments on why they adopted SHS, how they use it, and their outlook for the future.
