The Key For Activating The Japanese Renewable Power Market


19 November, 2021 @ 5:00 pm 6:30 pm JST

We are delighted to announce that SpCCJ’s Corporate Member, X-Elio will be speaking at the webinar entitled “The key for activating the Japanese renewable power market – Learn from the efforts of European & US companies -“, together with ZECPOWER Inc. and Amazon Web Services (AWS). The webinar will be co-hosted by the Institute of Energy Economics, Japan and the EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation, in collaboration with the SpCCJ. 

The spread of renewable power in Japan has been promoted through the feed-in tariff (FIT) since 2012, but from 2022, it will shift to the market-linked price difference supply system called FIP (Feed-In-Premium). In addition, the non-fossil value trading market, which trades the non-fossil value of power as a certificate, started in 2018 and the system will be reformed this year. It is expected that more reasonable non-fossil value transactions will be expanded.

These institutional reforms will be carried out in response to the demands of end-users of the power who are committed to the efforts of Net Zero such as RE100. At the same time, the efforts of on-site and off-site corporate PPA are also expanding. In Europe & US, a market system centred on renewable energy has already been established and many players are developing various businesses to popularize net-zero electricity.

Based on this situation, the institutional trends for activating the Japanese renewable power market and the efforts of European & US companies will be introduced for exploring the path of renewable energy power generation toward 2050 carbon neutrality in this webinar.
