Agency for Natural Resources and EnergyWinter Energy Conservation Measures–Winter Energy Conservation Campaign from November to March–

In order to promote energy conservation measures for the winter, from November to March, meetings for the Inter-Ministerial Liaison Council for the Promotion of Energy and Resource Conservation Measures were held, and the Council approved the Winter Energy Conservation Measures on October 30, 2015.

The Inter-Ministerial Liaison Council for the Promotion of Energy and Resource Conservation Measures is composed of representatives from related ministries and agencies, and meetings for it have been held each year before the beginnings of summer and winter, during which energy consumption increases. On October 30, 2015, the Council approved the Winter Energy Conservation Measures (see Appendix (in Japanese)).

Note that the said Winter Energy Conservation Measures are for the promotion of efforts to be made for energy conservation in combination with the Electricity Supply-Demand Measures in the Winter of FY 2015, which were approved on October 30, 2015.

In addition, the government will call for the cooperation of all industries concerned with regard to energy saving and electricity conservation, and will more proactively promote efforts for electricity conservation made through cooperation between the national government, local governments, enterprises, and individuals so that such energy-saving measures can also contribute to electricity supply-demand measures.

Moreover, the government will also take the lead in making efforts to save energy and conserve electricity, such as moderating the temperature settings of heated rooms and reducing lighting.
