Environment ministry says Japan could hit 128TWh of solar by 2030

A new report compiled for Japan’s Ministry of the Environment has advised that the country could triple its proportion of energy generated from renewable sources in the overall mix by 2030.

The report by Mitsubishi Research Institute highlights the importance of an ongoing strategy to increase renewable energy deployment for both environmental reasons and for the benefit of Japan’s national security. Mitsubishi Research Institute and the environment ministry have recommended a number of policy proposals, including revisions to the feed-in tariff (FiT) system and better recognition of renewable heat as an alternative to PV-generated electric power.
