Within the context of the strategic partnership built between Argentina and Japan, both countries signed a Memorandum of Cooperation to boost the development of hydrogen as a pollution-free energy source.
The signing took place during the Second Hydrogen Energy Ministerial Meeting. This forum is attended by 35 countries and seeks to strengthen collaboration in promoting hydrogen as a clean, safe and reliable energy source. Unlike fossil fuels, hydrogen emits only water vapour when consumed. It is a technology that will prove vital in reducing polluting emissions on a large scale.
The Memorandum will promote investments in this field and provide the framework to integrate Argentina to sustainable energy global value chains.
Argentina has some of the best wind power resources in the world, which can be used to produce clean hydrogen on a large scale.
