Seven-Eleven Japan Co, Ltd. and Toyota Motor Corporation have signed an agreement to begin researching energy conservation and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions reduction in convenience store distribution and operation.
The two companies aim to contribute to the realisation of a low-carbon and hydrogen (H2)-based society by introducing H2 vehicles and power generators, newly developed by Toyota.
The companies will be researching distribution solutions such as trucks in which the refrigeration/ freezer unit and the truck itself are powered by fuel cells.
In addition, the utilisation of a fuel cell power generator as a power-source at stores with H2 stations will also be considered.
