    The 11 are:

    Toyota Motor Corporation
    Nissan Motor Co., Ltd.
    Honda Motor Co., Ltd.
    JXTG Nippon Oil & Energy
    Idemitsu Kosan Co., Ltd.
    Iwatani Corporation
    Tokyo Gas Co., Ltd.
    Toho Gas Co., Ltd.
    Air Liquide Japan Ltd.
    Toyota Tsusho Corporation
    Development Bank of Japan Inc.

    This is interesting too.

    As a specific form of such cooperation, the 11 companies will consider establishing a new company within 2017. The new company would aim to:
    1) achieve steady construction of hydrogen stations by implementing measures to support hydrogen-station construction and operation, and
    2) achieve wider use of FCVs and the independence of the hydrogen station business through activities for reducing costs, including governmental review of regulations, and activities for improving operational efficiencies, thus contributing to the realization of a hydrogen society in Japan.
