Addressing to solving the issue for climinate change by using electricity power plant usage to be operated with renewable hydrogen only.

To serve for CO2 emission, for making new job opportunity and for preventing from the lack of electricity power in any place on globe.

Problem: What problem is this initiative trying to address?

At starting point to consider for developing this technology, we in Japan experienced the influence of impact of Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant accident in 2011. Due to sudden lack of electricity by that, many victims as patients in hospitals, etc. have been suddenly passed away. In addition, we all on globe are currently sharing the biggest matter of climinate change by increasing CO2. I deceided to submit my concept to here to solve those matters and to share new electricity energy source without producing more CO2.

Solution Summary: What is the proposed solution? What do you see as its most promising aspects for creating shared value?

To solve the matter of climinate change due to increasing CO2, and to share the technology to produce electricity power by using hydrogen only as renewable energy source.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Specify both the social and the environmental impact of your work

I would like to propose this technology to any society on globe to continuously produce electricity power in the large scale as the fundamental power for the economical activities. It might-be not neccesary to speak that power of hydrogen when burning is very huge, and no CO2 would be secondary produced after generating electricity power. Because hydrogen reacted with oxygen when burning would come to be just hot airy water - H20, and no air pollution such as smoke dust would not be appeared due to no use of hydrocarbon fuel. In my consideration for the effect to the global enviroment, it would be positively encouraged to reduce the amount of CO2 in the air on globe, as the cause of climinate change.

Financial sustainability plan: How is this initiative financially supported? How will you ensure its financial sustainability long-term?

4. Earned income. Through the sales result, through the operating and sales activity to sell the electricity power to the market in each region.

Unique value proposition: What makes your initiative innovative? How does your project differ from other organizations working in the same field?

Completely generating the electricity power by renewable energy source. And it would be certainly possible to construct a huge volume of genarating electricity power plant at any local place, with taking advantage of the difference of the volume between in-put electrical power and out-put electrical power, when producing renewable hydrogen.

Founding story: Share a story about the "Aha!" moment that sparked the beginning of this initiative.

After the long period, it came to be more than ten years, I recognized the technical way to produce the difference between in-put electrical power and out-put power when making the electricity power by this particular power plant.

Although not much detail has been given to support the project, it looks there are some good elements which can be developed for full commercial take off. More co-operation may be sought from other stakeholders to enable a quick realisation of the venture. Work on the business model and financial sustainability. We would be interested to collaborate with you further to develop such a venture in Africa where we experience a lot of power fluctuations and black-outs. Good idea to bring into fruition.

Dear Noboru,
Congratulations for your proposal, it would indeed be great to have a technology that generates energy without negative environmental impact and using renewable sources! I would like to know more about the technology you present, since there is no clear description of it or evidence of its implementation or impact, has it already been implemented? Only implemented innovations are eligible for the prize.
I see a lot of potential to generate impact in the topic area you selected (rural development), however I did not see a clear link in your entry form. Has the technology been implemented in a rural context?
Also, it would be great to see a more descriptive answer to the financial sustainability question.
Warm regards and good luck with your project!
