Our thoughts on Japan’s 2030 Greenhouse Gas Reduction Target
On April 22, at the Summit on Climate Change, Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga announced Japan’s goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 46% by 2030, compared to 2013 levels.
To take action for the blue planet, Shizen Energy Group has been pursuing its vision that we join forces to “co-create a 100% renewable-powered planet”. We are delighted that this announcement will be a further step towards decarbonization in Japan.
On October 26, 2020, in his policy speech at the extraordinary diet session, Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga announced that Japan would achieve net-zero greenhouse-gas emissions by 2050. At that time, Shizen Energy Group, as an operator who runs the renewable energy business, believed that the entire energy industry needed to discuss the following two points: 1) specific numerical targets for the amount of renewable energy to be introduced to achieve the declaration, and 2) tangible steps for land use and grid-related issues t to promote renewable energy use further in Japan.

We, Shizen Energy Group, reiterate our expectation that the 6th Basic Energy Plan scheduled for this summer by the Strategic Policy Committee will include aggressive renewable implementation targets. Alongside such targets, we will continue our efforts to establish renewable power sources, ranging from solar power, wind power, small-scale hydroelectric power, to biomass. We will also introduce new solutions such as solar sharing that combines solar power generation and agriculture businesses, and small-to-medium scale energy systems utilising a renewable power generation system, storage batteries and EMS to meet a wide range of needs and demands. Shizen Energy Group will build, manage and maintain safe, secured renewable power plants to provide electricity to a variety of customers.
