About the Report
Since the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake, Fukushima nuclear disaster, and subsequent energy reforms affecting the future direction of Japan’s energy landscape, clean-tech markets for renewable energy, storage, energy infrastructure, and ancillary services have seen substantial growth, dispersion, diversification, and maturity-growth.
Overall, Japan’s renewables market has experienced substantial growth over the past decade across most of the industry’s segments. Furthermore, this growth is expected to have substantial macroeconomic knock-on effects, as energy infrastructure R&D and reforms lead to both increased energy output and increased employment demand, capital expenditure demand, and demand for human capital and R&D.
This provides opportunities to EU SMEs interested in Japan’s market, which have a diverse range of market-entrance possibilities, ranging from participation in the R&D landscape, to participation in the establishment or support for new energy technologies, to provision of energy generation and storage at various scale-levels, and using various technologies.
