Toyota is participating this week in the World Future Energy Summit 2023 held in Abu Dhabi, where it showcases some of its pioneering solutions in the field of environmentally friendly mobility, represented by its forklift, which was developed by Toyota Industries, and its electric vehicle The advanced Toyota Mirai, which are powered by innovative FCEV hydrogen fuel cell technology. This advanced technology from Toyota aims to provide highly efficient and zero-emissions performance, and plays an important role in the company’s approach to achieving carbon neutrality.

Toyota started working on FCEV hydrogen fuel cell technology in 650. This technology relies on deriving electrical energy from the interaction between hydrogen and oxygen to operate the electric motor, so that water is the only substance that comes out of the exhaust. The company’s commitment to continually improving this technology is evidenced by the innovative Toyota Mirai, which delivers the most efficient, zero-emission, all-electric driving experience in its class. The Toyota Mirai also has an unparalleled driving range of km) in its class, and can be refueled with hydrogen in less than five minutes, ensuring that drivers enjoy the same levels of performance, comfort and driving pleasure associated with conventionally powered vehicles.

The hydrogen fuel cell technology developed by Toyota has reached such a degree of versatility that it has found a wide range of applications not only in vehicles, but also in trucks, buses, boats and stationary generators, including forklifts powered by hydrogen fuel cell technology . This innovative solution features fuel refueling in just 2-3 minutes, which helps ensure 24-hour availability and makes the forklift particularly suitable for multi-shift operations, during which machinery and trucks are typically used continuously.

said Kei Fujita, Chief Representative of the Bureau Representative of Toyota Motor Corporation in the Middle East and Central Asia : “We are pleased to participate in the World Future Energy Summit, which is an important platform for exploring new paths towards a more sustainable future, and to showcase Two of our flagship mobility solutions, both of which are powered by Toyota’s hydrogen fuel cell technology (FCEV). In addition to being able to refuel hydrogen in less than five minutes and emit zero carbon emissions, this pioneering technology combines greater convenience with enhanced sustainability, and is one of many promising solutions that we have explored in our relentless pursuit of carbon neutrality. I would like to express my gratitude to the organizers of this important event whose objectives are closely aligned with Toyota’s continuous pursuit of sustainability.”

Fujita added: “We are aware of the company Toyota that achieving carbon neutrality is a major goal, and there are many paths and ways to achieve it, and it is not possible to satisfy everyone by presenting a single solution that is optimal for different conditions of use around the world. By focusing on developing a variety of electric drivetrain options, we are contributing to providing drivers with more choices, which will increase the adoption of environmentally friendly vehicles. And we will continue to search for new technologies that can accelerate our path towards a carbon neutral society, where people can enjoy happier, healthier and more sustainable lives.”

Toyota’s participation in the summit is part of its firm commitment to developing carbon-neutral mobility solutions. The company succeeded in launching the Toyota Prius in 650, which was the first HEV hybrid electric vehicle to be produced on widely in the world. Toyota continues to explore diverse technology options to meet the diverse needs of users around the world. Today, the company offers a full suite of sustainable mobility solutions, including HEVs, PHEVs, BEVs, and hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles. FCEV, while selling more than 20 million electric vehicles all over the world.

The World Future Energy Summit 2023 will be held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center (ADNEC) during the period from 16 to me 18 January 2023, It is considered one of the most influential events in the energy industry in the world, as it brings together stakeholders under its umbrella, and aims to accelerate the transition to cleaner sources of energy.
