NEDO has chosen to support a new front-loaded environmental research project that aims to reduce the length of time required for the environmental assessment process for geothermal power plants by half.

The information discovered through this project will be published in a guidebook around the end of fiscal year 2017. It will be widely utilized by geothermal power plant operators and other stakeholders with the intention of cutting the assessment period in half without reducing the quality of environmental assessments.
