Energy

The energy market in Japan is currently undergoing its most radical shake up since the end of the Second World War. The 2011 Earthquake and subsequent nuclear incident have led to a greater awareness by the Japanese government, business and consumers about the importance of sustainable supplies and a secure energy mix – with a significant shift in policy and market focus towards renewable sources of energy.

As a result there are opportunities for UK companies in low carbon energy generation such as offshore wind, solar PV and biomass, as well as in grid development, demand-side management, and smart storage – all areas where the UK’s power engineering sector is strong.Japanese companies and consumers are also looking for technological solutions which conserve energy – in particular focusing on smart technologies for business.
