Toyoda Gosei Tech Chosen For Ministry Project
Next-generation GaN power devices central to Japanese Ministry of the Environment project to reduce CO2
Toyoda Gosei has been selected, together with the research group of Hiroshi Amano at Nagoya University and IKS, for the development of GaN power devices in the Japanese Ministry of the Environment's 'Project for the Accelerated Adoption and Spread of Innovative Components and Materials to Achieve CO2 Reductions'.
Toyoda Gosei is using its expertise in blue LEDs and GaN, in developing next-generation power devices that can efficiently control high power.
In the Ministry of the Environment project, Toyoda Gosei and its partners will accelerate development of GaN power devices for application to power conditioners for solar power generation and EVs with the aim of cutting power loss.
They are also seeking to apply these improved power conditioners in microgrids that serve distinct communities, which will contribute to CO2 reductions in the entire power system.
