Renewable Energy

Image of Support & Research for Implementing Renewable EnergyThe use of renewable energy (solar, wind, hydro, geothermal, biomass, etc.) has garnered attention with respect to variety of aspects, including the reduction of greenhouse gases, utilization of energy resources, deregulation of power generation, and the development of independent power sources (local energy production for local consumption, securing emergency power sources).

Today, renewable energies continue to become widespread, but even before their popularization E&E Solutions provided services relating to the implementation of such energy across Japan. Drawing upon our significant track record and accumulated experience, we assist companies with the introduction of such energies in their business.

Solar Power Generation

Image of Solar Power GenerationSince the start of the Feed-in Tariff (FIT) Scheme for renewable energy in Japan, photovoltaic power has become the nation’s most widespread renewable energy.
To date, E&E Solutions has offered services for projects implementing photovoltaic power generation. These projects have been of varying type and scale, from “mega solar” power generation plants to rooftop photovoltaic power for distribution facilities and other such sites.
With a track record of assisting over 500 photovoltaic power projects, E&E Solutions has gained customers’ trust as one of Japan’s few bankable consulting companies in the field of photovoltaic energy.

Wind Power Generation

Image of Wind Power GenerationWind energy has attracted attention as a cheap and clean energy, and on a global scale it is the most widely implemented renewable energy source. However, its use in Japan has seen significant delays compared to Europe, the US, and China. With advancements in the development of technology related to offshore wind power generation, this clean energy is expected to see further implementation within the country, but there is still a need to overcome various issues, including technological and economic difficulties.

Since the 1980s, E&E Solutions has been involved in wind power-related research and development projects started by the Japanese government. Since these beginnings, our company has participated in a variety of R&D projects and has built up a substantial track record in providing municipal governments and private enterprises with support in implementing wind power generation projects.
