Transitioning from coal to renewable energy
Renewable energy, such as solar, wind, geothermal, micro hydro, and biomass, is clean and sustainable.
For our future energy needs, we have the option of switching to renewable sources while phasing out the existing coal-fired power plants. Choosing this path will prevent climate change and lead to a sustainable society.
Lower costs and technological developments have made renewable energy a realistic choice we can make right now. Any doubts regarding the feasibility of Japan’s shift to renewable energy are now a thing of the past.
Many companies and communities have already begun the transition to 100% renewable energy.
A thriving society not dependent on fossil fuels
A shift to renewable energy would free Japan from its dependence on fossil fuels and make the country highly energy self-sufficient. It would also allow the money that continues to go overseas to pay for imported fuel to instead be used to support businesses in Japan.
In other words, promoting decentralized power generation in Japan can provide the country with a stable energy supply and create local employment, which will stimulate and revitalize local and regional economies.
Let’s take action together!
