International Conference REvision2020: Renewables to Realize a Decarbonized Society

4 March 2020

in Japanese

REvision to be Held as Webcast without Audience

To spread renewable energy ideas but not virus, REvision will be held as a webcast on 4 March. International and domestic experts will meet in Tokyo and disseminate their knowledge and information as planned without the audience present via the internet. The link is here (English).
We hope that the people who registered for the event can use this opportunity to get informed without exposing themselves to the risk of being infected. Energy development is important at this moment in time.
We intend to hold a REvision event when the coronavirus no longer poses a threat, hopefully in the autumn.

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 will reveal the trends and developments for renewables around the world and in Japan, the situation of offshore wind that is expected to be fully implemented, the role of green hydrogen generated by renewable energy sources, as well as focus 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.
