Agency for Natural Resources and EnergyAnnouncement Regarding the Present Status of Introduction of Facilities Generating Renewable Energy as of June 30, 2013
The Agency for Natural Resources and Energy (ANRE) compiled the present status of introduction for facilities generating renewable energy as of June 30, 2013, and hereby announces the results.
The total combined capacity of such facilities from April 2012 to January 2013, reached 1,394,000 kW.
|Renewable energy generating facilities (type of source)||Before introducing the Feed-in Tariff Scheme||After introducing the Feed-in Tariff Scheme|
|Combined total capacity of facilities before July 1, 2012||Combined total capacity of facilities in FY2012 (from July 1, 2012, to March 31, 2013)||Combined total capacity of facilities in FY2013 (from April 1 to June 30, 2013)|
|Photovoltaic power (for households)||About 4,700,000 kW||969,000 kW||410,000 kW|
|Photovoltaic power (other than households)||About 900,000 kW||704,000 kW||1,416,000 kW|
|Wind power||About 2,600,000 kW||63,000 kW||3,000 kW|
|Small and medium hydropower (1,000 kW or more)||About 9,400,000 kW||0 kW||0 kW|
|Small and medium hydropower (less than 1,000 kW)||About 200,000 kW||2,000 kW||0 kW|
|Biomass power||About 2,300,000 kW||30,000 kW*||68,000 kW|
|Geothermal power||About 500,000 kW||1,000 kW||0 kW|
|Total||About 20,600,000 kW||1,769,000 kW||1,897,000 kW|
* In addition to the above facilities, ANRE approved those which generate electricity through the combustion of mixtures of coal and other materials and which began operating in FY2012, from which 350,000 kW of electricity has been generated. However, this method of production is not considered to be 100% biomass power generation by ANRE. Based on this viewpoint, the power generated from these facilities has not been taken into consideration in order to avoid misrepresentation of the figures.
