Research and Development for Total Cost Reduction of Heat Utilization as Renewable Energy

Project overview

Project period: FY2019 to FY2023, FY2022 budget: JPY 400 million

The goal of this project is to promote research and development that contributes to a reduction in the total cost of utilizing heat as renewable energy and thereby expand its use. There are a wide variety of players involved in the introduction of systems for utilizing heat as renewable energy. Therefore, in addition to promoting research and development by using a consortium framework that includes both upstream and downstream players, the path and specific efforts (i.e., popularization measures) necessary for achieving the following goals will be compiled in an action plan: reducing total costs by at least 20% by 2023 (return on investment in 14 years or less) and reducing total costs by at least 30% by 2030 (return on investment in 8 years or less).
