Japan Energy Challenge Selects
Power to Hydrogen for 2020 Cohort

COLUMBUS, Ohio September 9, 2020 – Pioneering hydrogen and energy storage company, Power to Hydrogen was selected to join the 2020 cohort for Japan Energy Challenge, a venture competition that endeavors to connect the most promising energy sector companies with an impressive cadre of Japan’s leading energy companies. The goal is to build relationships that result in collaborations, sales, investment, and other forms of support for helping grow the invited companies in Japan.

Held annually since 2018, Japan Energy Challenge (JEC) is a unique competition where all invited cohort companies have at least one sponsor interested in meeting them specifically. The JEC team works with the invited companies in the months leading up to the event to fully understand their business and products, making the actual meetings very meaningful to exploring future relationships.

All JEC cohort companies will present to an audience of 100+ attendees from the Japanese energy sector. Based on the presentation, JEC sponsors will indicate their willingness to meet with cohort companies and JEC will facilitate this with the intent of developing new engagements which can be presented at the summit in Tokyo in December.

Japan Energy Challenge is sponsored by leading Japanese energy companies including Tokyo Gas, Enechange, Chubu Electric Power, JXTG Nippon Oil & Energy, Looop, Shimz, Panasonic, Hokuriku Electric Power, Tohoku Electric Power, MIRAIT Holdings Corporation, Chugoku Electric Power, Toyota Tsusho, Shikoku Electric Power and Mitsui Sumitomo Insurance.

Upon learning of Power to Hydrogen’s selection, CEO Tad Dritz said “Being selected as a finalist for Japan Energy Challenge is a great honor and great for Power to Hydrogen because it connects us with one of the largest and most progressive energy markets. We look forward to meeting with JEC sponsors and exploring opportunities to pilot Clean Energy Bridge in Japan.”
