Strategic Innovation Program for Energy Conservation Technologies

Project overview

Project period: FY2012 to FY2021, FY2019 budget: JPY 8.15 billion yen

This project aims to realize sustainable energy conservation compatible with economic growth. The goal of the project is to provide developmental support for achieving the seamless commercialization of technology expected to have major energy-conserving effects by 2030, with a focus on the critical technology mentioned in the Energy Efficiency Technology Strategy, including the industrial, private (i.e. residential and commercial), and transportation sectors.

Overview Preliminary research will be carried out aimed at the development of practical applications or demonstrations for the purpose of formulating development/introduction scenarios, including the clarification of specific problem-solving methods and the outlook for commercialization. Development of technology for application or transfer contributing to energy conservation by using basic technologies and know-how already possessed by companies and universities. As a general rule, projects aimed at the commercialization of products within three years after the end of the above development phase are eligible for support. Development of technology to overcome factors inhibiting commercialization or to acquire demonstration data intended to help achieve steadier commercialization. As a general rule, projects for which the goal is to quickly market products after the end of the above development phase are eligible for support. Development of technology to achieve energy conservation by specifying themes (technology development issues) for multiple companies to collaborate on in order to implement the development of technology and disseminate the results in a steady manner, including the development of innovative technology that leads to the resolution of industry-wide issues and issues spanning different industries as well as the development of unified evaluation methods related to new technologies. As a general rule, projects aimed at the commercialization of products within three years after the end of the above development phase are eligible.
  • * The maximum technology development cost is the total annual project cost (the NEDO subsidy amount + the amount paid by the implementer).
