Opportunities in the Wind Power Market in Japan

Watch this recorded webinar to learn about the recent changes towards pro-wind energy in Japan and the possibility for UK companies to get involved in wind energy projects. 

The Great East Japan earthquake and the subsequent incident at Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in 2011 have brought about big discussions on Japanese energy policy among both the government and the public.

About 50 nuclear power plants in Japan are still under suspension. The current government have proposed the increasing of renewable energy in their long term energy plan and have introduced a new Feed in Tariff scheme. Among several available options of renewable resources Japan has a huge potential for wind power energy, including off shore wind.

The speaker will talk about the current wind power projects in Japan, including the feature of off shore wind projects, and will touch on how UK companies might be able to get involved in these projects in Japan.
