REvision - Webinar

4 March 2020

in Japanese

To spread renewable energy ideas but not virus, REvision was held as a webcast. International and domestic experts met in Tokyo and disseminated their knowledge and information as planned via the internet.

Renewables are growing fast as the most inexpensive power sources in most parts of the world. In Japan, the expansion of renewables is changing the electricity market, creating new businesses, and taking a major step toward realizing a decarbonized society.

REvision2020 revealed the trends and developments for renewables around the world and in Japan, the situation of offshore wind that was expected to be fully implemented, the role of green hydrogen generated by renewable energy sources, as well as focusing on the legal
unbundling of the transmission/distribution sector scheduled in April 2020 in Japan, transformations of business models for power companies, and the expansion of RE100 companies.
