Built as part of Japan’s technology development project, the FH2R was built with a goal of establishing a hydrogen application business model and hydrogen marking business model in response to increased demand.

The New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organisation (NEDO) is the main agent for the project, reports the Gas Review. Toshiba Energy Systems and Solutions is in charge of the overall project and the overall hydrogen energy system.

Tohoku Electric Power is responsible for the power grid control system and items related to the power grid, and Iwatani handles the hydrogen demand prediction system and hydrogen storage and supply aspects of the project.
