Challenge for the future society

Looking ahead towards society of the next generation, Tokyo Gas proposes business in various fields based on our developed technology without being bound to just the gas business. For example, we are working to help reduce CO2 emissions, which contribute to global warming, by developing more efficient fuel cells and biomass technologies as well as pursuing realization of a future hydrogen-based society. Also, we are developing new gas smart metering systems which will allow for ONE to ONE communication with our customers.
