The project is part of Tokyo’s shift to get alternative fuel sources moving more vehicles on the city’s roads. The government hopes that this demonstration project will lead to further adoption of fuel-cell vehicles and create a society that relies heavily on hydrogen as a major power source, thereby reduce the city’s greenhouse gas emissions.
