Ene-Vision Co Ltd started to supply "RE100 electricity," which is certified as 100% renewable energy-derived electricity, Dec 1, 2019.

Ene-Vision (Nagoya City), which is a company affiliated with Toyota Tsusho Corp, supplies net-zero-CO2-emission electricity by using the J-Credit Scheme.

As a starter, Ene-Vision started to supply power to "Nagoya Atsuta Hydrogen Station" (Nagoya City), which is run by Toyota Tsusho Air Liquide Hydrogen Energy Corp (a company affiliated with the Toyota Tsusho group). By purchasing RE100 electricity, the power consumption of the hydrogen station practically becomes 100% renewable energy.

Toyota Tsusho Air Liquide Hydrogen Energy also runs "Toyota Interchange Hydrogen Station" (Toyota City). It is currently considering introducing RE100 electricity to the hydrogen station.

Ene-Vision is an engineering company that deals with biomass power generation and co-generation systems. Also, Toyota Tsusho Air Liquide Hydrogen Energy is a joint venture that Toyota Tsusho and Air Liquide Japan Ltd established in the aim of promoting the use of fuel-cell vehicles.

The Toyota Tsusho group said that it will contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions by creating synergy between the two groups.
