Webinar 166: The Market for Biogas Plants in Japan and Opportunities for EU Companies

9-03-21 | 10:30 - 11:30 AM CET

What business opportunities does the Japanese biogas market offer to EU SMEs? What are the main challenges for a successful market entry?

The share of Biogas in Japan’s energy mix, especially in comparison to other renewable energies such as solar energy, is still rather small. However, the biogas sector shows a steady and positive development and current policy strategies illustrate the increasing importance of biogas production in Japan.

As the Japanese electricity market is now largely liberalised, a growing number of national and local players are starting to sell “green” electricity. Especially biogas is a suitable renewable energy source to deliver a stable supply of “green” power. Therefore, bioenergy is also expected to play an important role in the future.

Also in urban areas there is a potential growth market for biogas plants as feedstock trends are shifting from the traditional livestock excreta and sewage sludge to a mix with food waste including industrial waste and food scraps.

However, when entering the Japanese market, several specific obstacles for operating biogas plants and challenges need to be considered carefully. This webinar will give interested European SMEs an insight into the opportunities and key success factors for a successful entry in the Japanese biogas plant market.

The webinar is targeted to EU companies seeking to newly develop or strengthen their current positions in Japan’s biogas market.
