Report: Renewable Energies in Japan

About the Report

This report provides a comprehensive analysis of the renewable energy market in Japan and business opportunities in this sector. It focuses on four types of new Renewable Energies that offer promising perspectives in Japan; solar, wind, geothermal and marine energy. It explains that the changes in the Japanese government’s attitude towards renewable energy since the Fukushima disaster, as it started to ease restrictions and promote wind, solar and geothermal energies, resulted in the booming renewable energy industry as a whole.

About Environment

Japan's pollution levels in air and water have been decreasing consistently and for the first time ever, the share of renewable energies in the total energy production has reached over 15%.


Japanese recycling policy is largely administered at the municipal level, and Japanese local government often possesses the latest in recycling technology. Japanese waste differs significantly from European waste.

Eco Construction

Japanese houses are mostly new and largely designed to only last for roughly 30 years. Culturally, the land is seen as more important than the house on it.
