Solar Energy Future Japan 2021

Outlined in the 5th Strategic Energy Plan, Japan had aimed for between 22% and 24% of the country’s generation mix to be attributed to renewables in 2030. In 2019, renewables made up 19% of the country’s power generation, including about 8% of wind and solar power.

In the next decade, Japan’s wind and solar generation costs are expected to fall by over 30%, further improving competitiveness against fossil fuels. This will lead to major investment opportunities in new energy even as subsidy levels decline.

High power prices and government subsidies have helped Japan to become a leader in distributed solar power with over 45 gigawatts (GW) deployed to date, while offshore wind is expected to grow exponentially to about 8GW by 2030, and help to displace baseload conventional power.
