Public Symposium Power Market Restructuring for Renewables Integration

27 January 2020

in Japanese

Increasing deployment of renewables is transforming the power market in Japan. But much faster integration of renewables is required to avoid climate crisis.  
In Japan many new markets are introduced in the system; base-load market, capacity market, non-fossil fuel value trading market, unbundling of incumbent power utilities will be introduced by April 2020.
In conjunction with this development, Renewable Energy Institute hosted a conference on Japan's power market restructuring to discuss what is desired to facilitate the integration of a high share of renewables to the market.
