Project for Supporting the Introduction of Wind Power Generation
The Strategic Energy Plan formulated by the Cabinet on April 11, 2014, mentions the need to accelerate the introduction of renewable energy as much as possible and to steadily proceed with enhancement of power grids, rationalization of regulations, and research and development for cost reduction. The plan also calls for promotion of demonstration research related to offshore wind power generation, consideration of a feed-in tariff system, promotion of technological development, evaluations of safety, reliability, and economic efficiency, and establishment of environmental assessment methods.
The goal of this project is to collect necessary information and provide support to help more quickly realize the practical application of bottom-mounted offshore wind power generation while also contributing to increased wind power introduction and enhanced industrial competitiveness. In addition, the project is intended to encourage the systematic introduction of wind power generation by shortening the time period for environmental impact assessments that are necessary when introducing wind power generation or other facilities of a certain scale or larger.
