Toshiba, Philippines government sign MoU on the promotion of autonomous hydrogen energy supply systems

Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Corporation (Toshiba ESS) concluded a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with National Electrification Administration (NEA), an government organization of the Philippines, on the implementation of H2One, a hydrogen-based autonomous energy supply system with renewable energy and the use of hydrogen as a fuel for power generation in the Philippines.

Under the MOU, Toshiba ESS and NEA will study the installation site, the optimum system specifications in the Philippines, and the operation system, including maintenance.

In the Philippines, half of the current energy supply is from coal and oil-fired thermal power. The country is also reliant on imports of these fuels, and increasingly sees renewable energy as a chance to improve the self-sufficiency of its energy supply. The country seeks solutions for remote islands with low electrification rates, and ways to reduce risk from typhoons and other natural disasters.

H2One is an integrated system that uses a renewable energy source to electrolyze water to produce hydrogen, and stores and uses the hydrogen in fuel cells to provide stable delivery of CO2-free, environmentally-friendly electricity and hot water.


One of the application of H2One is the “Off-grid solution” distributed energy system that allows the supply of clean and stable energy, without influence from the weather, to islands currently reliant on diesel and other generating systems such as thermal power.

Toshiba ESS has been conducting a survey project to develop applications for the H2One in remote islands in the Philippines and Indonesia. Toshiba ESS has already reached a partnership agreement with Badan Pengkajian dan Penerapan Teknologi, an Indonesian government organization, for the spread of H2One throughout Indonesia.



Clean H2 produced with clean REs is an effective limitless way to ensure clean energy on a 24/7 basis including H2 for FCEVs of all sizes and shape and reduce pollution and GHGs..


These puff pieces never mention per-kWh rates or system and O&M costs that would let you calculate them.

Tropical islands tend to have plenty of biomass potential, which is likely a cheaper avenue for decarbonization of relatively low per-area electric consumption than hypedrogen.
