Promotion of renewable energy

2017年3月14日更新 Update

Renewable energy introduction target

Implimentation of renewable energy

 With the goal of meeting the prefecture's entire energy needs through renewable energy by around 2040, the increased introduction of such energy sources is actively promoted, and a centre and other initiatives will foster, and help integrate, relevant industries.

 Fukushima prefecture is the preferred place of renewable energy

Before the disaster(2011), one third of the metropolitan area electricity was supplied by Fukushima, and the electricity transmission network had been implemented.

Fukushima is the third largest prefecture in Japan and has diverse resources (solar, wind power, geothermal power, water resources, forest resources, etc.) and has great potential for introducing renewable energy.

Signing of the memorandum with the Danish ambassador to Japan

 Fukushima Prefecture has signed memoranda of understanding on cooperation in the field of renewable energy and energy saving with the Ministry of the Environment of the state of North-Rhine Westphalia (NRW) and the Embassy of Denmark in Japan.
 By making use of their advanced knowledge and experience in those fields, Fukushima Prefecture aims to adopt renewable energy and develop relevant industries.
