On August 6, 2020, Renewable Energy Institute released the “Proposal for the 2030 Energy Mix (First Edition)”.
The released proposal shows Japan’s path towards a renewable energy-based society. It insists the current state-wide energy mix has collapsed and needs urgent review, and proposes what a sustainable energy mix looks like.
It also presents the necessary policy to achieve the energy policy goals to realize a carbon-free society, ensure a stable energy supply, reduce environmental risks, and provide affordable energy in the future.
The released proposal shows that it is feasible to achieve a “sustainable electricity generation mix”, which is supplied by 45% of renewable energy and not dependent on nuclear or coal-fired generation by 2030.
