Energy confinement properties for hydrogen and deuterium H-mode plasmas are investigated. The stored energy for deuterium becomes larger approximately by a factor of 1.7-2.0 than that for hydrogen at a given heating power. When the stored energy is fixed for both cases, the required power differs roughly a factor of $$sim1.7$$ and the identical spatial profiles of electron density $$n_mathrm{e}$$, electron temperature $$T_mathrm{e}$$ and ion temperature $$T_mathrm{i}$$ are obtained. Despite almost the same power crossing the separatrix, type-I ELM frequency for hydrogen becomes approximately in double from that for deuterium. The pedestal pressure differs approximately by a factor of $$sim2$$ for the cases between hydrogen and deuterium plasmas at a given absorbed power. The relation between $$beta_mathrm{p}^mathrm{TOT}$$ and $$beta_mathrm{p}^mathrm{ped}$$ is almost identical regardless of the difference of the isotropic composition.
