Renewables Trade Delegation To Tokyo

Discover your company's potential in the Japanese energy market on a Renewables Overseas Trade Delegation to Tokyo.

Renewables Overseas Trade Delegation to Tokyo

Why Japan?

Japan is developing its renewable energy sector following the Great East Japan earthquake and subsequent nuclear incident of 2011. A feed-in-tariff (FIT) programme introduced by the government has encouraged inward investment and increased competition with revenues from renewable generation and related equipment expected to expand to more than $30 billion by 2016.

Legislation has also been passed to start electricity sector reform in 2015 which will see renewable energy providers having a bigger stake in Japan’s electricity market. 

There are also opportunities relating to the 2020 Olympic Games to be held in Tokyo. Japan has pledged that venues and facilities being built or renovated for the games would meet the energy-efficiency building 
certification standards with maximum use of natural energy, renewable sources, and recycled construction materials.
