Program to Develop and Promote the Commercialization of Energy Conservation Technologies to Realize a Decarbonized Society
In order to realize a decarbonized society by 2050, it is necessary to promote the development of innovative technologies that will realize significant energy savings across industries, and continuously support both the further diffusion of these technologies and the development of new technology seeds.
This project aims to realize sustainable energy conservation compatible with economic growth, and provide seamless support for technology development up to the commercialization stage, focusing on key technologies in the industrial, consumer (household and business), and transportation sectors as set forth in Japan’s Energy Conservation Technology Strategy, as well as technologies expected to have high energy conservation effects by 2040. The following is a summary of NEDO activities under this program.

|Overview||Conduct of preliminary surveys to examine feasibility of technology seeds, formulate development scenarios, and study energy conservation effects.||Utilization of technology seeds and formulation of development/introduction scenarios. Conduct of preliminary research for development of demonstrations and practical applications.||Development of applied technologies based on technologies and know-how possessed by companies with goal of realizing commercialization of products within three years after completion of this development phase.||Development of technologies to overcome factors hindering commercialization, such as acquisition of empirical data, with the goal of realizing commercialization of products within two years after completion of this development phase.||With a view to 2050, establishment of themes for business collaborations, such as development of innovative technologies that lead to resolution of both common issues within single industry and cross-sectoral issues that straddle different industries.|
- * The maximum technology development cost refers to total annual project costs (calculated using the total amount of NEDO subsidies + funding provided by the project implementer).
