For a sustainable, rich society based on renewables
Many countries and regions around the globe have already turned to renewables as a main energy source, with the aim of supplying 40-50% of total power consumption from renewables by 2030. In contrast, in its Long-term Energy Supply and Demand Outlook, the Japanese government has set its target for 2030 at 22-24%, a figure none would see as ambitious. Japan can achieve significant growth in renewable energy only by setting a much higher national target, as well as reviewing restricted connections to grids that hinder development and old, unreasonable regulations. Renewable Energy Institute helps to solve these and other challenges through conducting studies and research into electricity systems, renewable energy policy programs, and market environments, among others.
