International Conference
Renewables in an Interconnected Energy System

26 November 2019

in Japanese



Low cost and fast deployment of renewable energy is bringing a major transformation to the world. Renewables are already the cheapest power source of any energy in most parts of the world. This accelerates an energy shift that will have geopolitical effects. It will also provide an economic opportunity of radical reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.

How can we use these opportunities to improve the energy conditions of previously import dependent region in the world? What are the economic benefits of transmission capacity within countries, between countries and in global interconnectedness? How will transmission interact with battery storage and the use of low cost electricity to substitute fossil fuel and to produce fuels?

The conference highlighted the expanding trend of renewables in East Asian countries, and sought opportunities to integrate those countries with advanced transmission systems.
