The EnergyAgency FUKUSHIMA works on behalf of Fukushima Prefectural Government as the operative platform to advance the whole industry in the field of renewable energy, aiming to increase the number of businesses, employments and productions.
Over the past eight years after the disaster, Fukushima Prefectural Government has taken the initiative to achieve the reconstruction and recovery of Fukushima by providing multiple means of action to make the land “the frontrunner in the field of renewable energy”. Fukushima Prefecture is now working towards the target of covering 100% equivalent of the prefecture’s energy demand with introducing renewable energy by around 2040.
In order to address these challenges, the Government has established and managed the “Fukushima Renewable Energy Association”, organized “Renewable Energy Industrial Fair Fukushima”, exhibited at trade fairs held in the metropolitan areas in Japan as well as overseas countries, built new networks, provided various types of support for technical development and business expansion. In addition to this, the Energy Agency. FUKUSHIMA was established to accelerate the shift to renewable energy by creating and managing the energy industry cluster.
The EnergyAgency. FUKUSHIMA has supported several projects over the past years, here are some of the most mentionable. For example, the Mega-wind farms and their transmission liens are being established in the Abukuma-mountain and coastal region. Smart community projects are currently in progress in Soma-City and towns of Shinchi, Namie, Naraha, all in the coastal Hamadori-region, which are designed to effectively use renewable energy and hydrogen locally. The 440kW Tsuchiyu-Onsen Binary Power Plant has started operation, using thermal energy from the Tsuchiyu-Onsen. And there is currently a huge project in progress, with the Prefectural Government aiming to provide Hydrogen made in Fukushima for the upcoming Tokyo Olympics in 2020.
EnergyAgency. FUKUSHIMA is also responsible for strengthening cooperation with overseas enterprises and municipalities, including providing support for B2B matchmaking. EnergyAgency. FUKUSHIMA is the entrance to a new market in Fukushima, the place where the field of renewable energy grows steadily stronger and the place for clustering and networking opportunities.
