Agency for Natural Resources and EnergySummer Energy Conservation Measures -Summer Energy Conservation Campaign from June to September-

In order to promote energy conservation measures for the summer from June to September, the Inter-Ministerial Liaison Council for the Promotion of Energy and Resource Conservation Measures was held, and the Council made a decision on the Summer Energy Conservation Measures on May 16, 2014.

The Inter-Ministerial Liaison Council for the Promotion of Energy and Resource Conservation Measures is comprised of related ministries and agencies, and has been held each year before the beginning of summer and winter, during which energy consumption increases. On May 22, 2015, the Council made a decision on the Summer Energy Conservation Measures (see Appendix (in Japanese)).

Note that the said Summer Energy Conservation Measures are for the promotion of efforts to be made for energy conservation in combination with “Electricity Supply-Demand Measures in the Summer of FY 2015,” which was approved on May 22, 2015.

In particular, during the Summer Energy Conservation Campaign from June to September, METI has designated the period from July to September, when it calls for the public to cooperate in energy conservation, as the “Months for Intensively Implementing Electricity Saving and Energy Conservation.” Through this campaign, METI will endeavor to raise public awareness of electricity saving and energy conservation and call for the public to cooperate in carrying out such measures.

The government itself will take the lead in engaging in the electricity saving and energy conservation measures, such as the use of air conditioning at an appropriate temperature and avoiding unnecessary lighting.
