Agency for Natural Resources and Energy Energy Efficiency Technology Strategy 2016 Formulated

The Agency for Natural Resources and Energy (ANRE) and the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) jointly formulated the Energy Efficiency Technology Strategy 2016. The strategy aims to effectively promote the research and development of energy efficiency technologies and popularize them, and specifies the important fields that will strongly contribute to energy efficiency.

1. Overview

The strategy aims to effectively advance R&D and popularize the outcomes from R&D as an effort for achieving the goal of “realization of an advanced energy-saving society” set in the Strategic Energy Plan. To this end, it specifies the technologies that Japan should emphasize, and describes compiled scenarios and other future visions for introducing such technologies into society.

In light of the Strategic Energy Plan and other government policies, ANRE, under the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI), and NEDO collaboratively formulated the strategy, taking into consideration the Energy Efficiency Technology Strategy 2011 as the basis of the revision and the discussion results from the expert meetings.

2. Key points of the revised strategy

The strategy was revised to include broader concepts concerning energy management systems, e.g., HEMS and BEMS, bearing in mind the trends in IoT and other new related technologies.
