Japan: Energy Development Alternatives
Japan is densely populated country, and that makes the Japanese market more subtle confronted with other markets. If we employ the possibilities of near-shore establishments or even marine facilities in the future, that will give us the opportunity of continued use of wind energy. If we go overseas, it’s more expensive because the construction of foundations is expensive. However, often the wind is a strong marine, and that can compensate the higher costs. We’re getting more and more ambitious with our stuff. The prices if you measure per kilowatt-hour produced is going below, because turbines are growing more productive. So we are creating increased interest in wind energy. If you compare it to other renewable energy sources, the wind is by far the most competing today. If we can use places close to the sea or at sea with sufficient wind machines, then the price per k/h is competitive against other origins of energy.
The Japanese know that they cannot become auxiliary to the power supply dictates of outside nations; World War II taught them that. They required to produce the power of their own, and they signifying a separate island state with very few natural resources that are favorable to energy production as it is defined now is very open to foreign investment and international growth as well as the outlook of technological reform that can make them individualistic. Letting enterprises such as Vestas to get the nation running on more wind-powered energy is a step in the right direction for the people of Japan.
The production of energy through what is known as micro hydroelectric power plants has also been catching on in Japan. Japan has myriad rivers and mountain streams, and these are ideally suited places for the putting up of micro hydroelectric power plants, the power plants run by water which produces 100 kilowatts or less named by the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization. By comparison, “mini-hydroelectric” power plants can put out up to 1000 kilowatts of electrical energy.
In Japan, the small-scaled mini- and micro-hydro electric power plants have observed for a substantial time as being suitable for creating electricity in volcanic regions, but they have through distillation come to be marked as excellent for Japanese cities as well. Kawasaki City Waterworks, Japan Natural Energy Company, and Tokyo Electric Power Company have all committed to the extension of small-scale hydroelectric power plants in Japanese cities.
