In the last G7 summit, it was agreed that "all or most of the electricity sector must be decarbonized by 2035." Reaching this agreement will require a rapid expansion of renewable energy. Hokkaido, where the ministerial meeting will be held before the G7 Hiroshima Summit in May, is a region rich in natural resources, and utilizing Hokkaido's ample resources is essential for establishing Japan's decarbonization and energy independence. Ahead of the Ministerial Meeting scheduled on April 15 and 16, Renewable Energy Institute co-hosted a forum in which the expectations and the potential for expansion and acceleration of renewables deployment in Hokkaido were discussed.
