Present Status and Promotion Measures for the introduction of Renewable Energy in Japan

Worldwide Promotion Measures for Renewable Energy Introduction

The worldwide promotion measures for renewable energy introduction are roughly categorized into 2 groups.

RPS (RPS: Renewables Portfolio Standard) (Regulation by quantity: Obliges electric utilities to use a fixed minimum amount of renewable energy sources)

Feed in Tariff (FIT) (Regulation by price: Obliges electric utilities to purchase renewable energy sources at a fixed price). In Japan, the purchase scheme applies only to excess electricity by PV power generation.
