Proposal: A Renewable Energy Promotion Policy for Achieving a Low-carbon Society

February 2009
Committee on Renewable Energy Promotion Policy
for Achieving a Low-carbon Society

In this Proposal, we have reviewed Japan痴 policy for promoting renewable energy to achieve a low-carbon society. In particular, we have focused more attention on photovoltaic power generation because it is an ubiquitous source of energy, with the huge potential of significant contribution to the development of Japanese industries. In this Proposal, a specific policy is presented with respect to the adoption of solar generation toward 2020 and 2030.

We hope this Proposal will facilitate the understanding of the significance of promoting renewable energy and encourage public discussion of the implementation of relevant policies, including a cost allocation mechanism, thus contributing to increased production of renewable energy.
