Low-carbon society

Tokyo Gas contributes to the realization of a low-carbon society by promoting widespread adoption of city gas. The following introduces research and development geared toward further realization of a low-carbon society.

Shift to higher efficiency

Fuel cells

Development of Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) We are aiming to the early-stage commercialization of the new energy supply system that contributes to a low-carbon society.
Development of FPS (fuel processing system) for ENE-FARM Tokyo Gas is developing a compact, low-cost fuel processing system.

Commercial and industrial appliances

The high-efficiency oxygen generating device "HT-PSA" Development of oxygen generation technology with an electric power consumption rate of an unsurpassed level
Electric and gas hybrid-type superheated steam generator Tokyo Gas has created a superheated steam generator which utilizes a hybrid system combining the superior temperature control of electric systems with the highly efficient heating capacity of gas combustion to overcome the conventional challenge of controlling power consumption while also achieving precise temperature control.
Research and development of commercial kitchen appliances Conducting research and development into various industrial kitchen appliances in accordance with customer needs.
Creation of a new energy services business that utilizes a PEFC system Examining technology related to the production, transportation, storage and use of hydrogen that has very low emissions of CO2 at the manufacturing stage.
