What is the Japanese Renewable Energy Market Situation in 2013?

[Abstract]BEFORE the Fukushima accident in March 2011, Renewable Energies accounted for only 9% (mainly hydroelectricity for 8%) of the total 2010 electricity production in Japan, far behind major conventional sources like gas, nuclear and coal. From a world ranking perspective, Japan was #13 in Wind Energy, #3 in Solar Energy and # 8 in Geothermal Energy. In short, the government was concentrating on nuclear and solar power generation, providing little support for other types of alternative energy.

AFTER the accident, in 2012, all 54 nuclear reactors were put out of service for a short period of time. As Japan’s hydroelectric potential is nearly saturated, the Japanese government has been pushing since then other types of Renewable Energies (wind, solar, geothermal, marine). As a result, the whole Renewable Energy Industry is booming, as testified by the still increasing amount of investments made by major Japanese industrial conglomerates.

The webinar is targeted to EU Green Companies and Investors looking into approaching or entering this key growing Market.
