I. Introduction
On July 16, 2015, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (“METI”) issued the target for Japan’s energy mix in 2030. According to the long-term target set forth therein, renewable energy, such as solar and wind power, will account for 22-24% of the entire electricity supply as of 2030 while the share of LNG, coal and nuclear will be 27%, 26% and 20-22%, respectively. Renewable energy is likely to have an important role in the future electricity supply in Japan, and the current growth of the renewable energy
investment market is robust. This article summarizes the key points to note when investing in Japanese renewable energy projects.
