This report provides a comprehensive analysis of the renewable energy market in Japan and business opportunities in this sector. It focuses on four types of new Renewable Energies that offer promising perspectives in Japan; solar, wind, geothermal and marine energy. It explains that the changes in the Japanese government’s attitude towards renewable energy since the Fukushima disaster, as it started to ease restrictions and promote wind, solar and geothermal energies, resulted in the booming renewable energy industry as a whole.
Therefore, in his report, Mr. Huysveld tries to answer crucial questions for EU investors such as; What is the current situation in 2013? Which technology has the most potential for EU investors? Or what are the key challenges? To answer these questions, he examined the existing key technologies, potential and ongoing projects and the state of Japanese research for each of the market segment; solar, wind, geothermal and marine energy. He then summarised his findings into a SWOT analysis.
