Although wind power installations in Japan are still way behind Europe’s volume, 80% of Japan’s related wind industry believes that the sector will grow in the future and the business potential is huge. Which are the bottlenecks that hinder wind energy development today? What are recent trends and policies, relevant to the sector? To which extent can European companies participate in maturing the market and tackling the barriers?
- AN ASSESSMENT OF COOPERATION AND BUSINESS POTENTIAL WITH EUROPEAN COMPANIES – The Report presents the profile of the Microalgae and Microalgal Biomass Industry in Japan with the newest policies, projects and stakeholders involved. The Report also assesses and provides recommendations on the cooperation and business potential for the European companies interested in this sector in Japan.
As part of the research for the 2016 wind energy report, a list of relevant industry players has been conducted. Based on that list, a virtual map was created to visualize around 280 relevant companies, linking their GPS data with website, address, details on business, and telephone. Screenshots below provide examples.
