July 18, 2019

In 2016, the Agency for Natural Resources and Energy (ANRE) and the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) jointly formulated Energy Efficiency Technology Strategy 2016, aiming to effectively promote the research and development of energy efficiency technologies and popularize them. ANRE hereby announces that it and NEDO revised the key technologies shown in the strategy.

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, which are called “key technologies,” and describes scenarios and other future visions for introducing such technologies into society, which were all compiled jointly by ANRE and NEDO.

In light of the Fifth Strategic Energy Plan and other national policies, ANRE and NEDO revised the key technologies featured in the strategy, taking into consideration the results of the expert discussions and other meetings.

2. Key points of the revision

In this revision, ANRE and NEDO further subdivided the 14 key technologies and added new key technologies based on the current circumstances below and compiled 39 key technologies as a result.
