Various types of power plants producing biomass, geothermal, hydro-electric, nuclear, solar, waste, and wind energy

Alternate Energy Sources in Japan



Biomass energy plants typically burn biological material that is usually grown, or produced, specifically for the plant which is renewable.

Iwakuni Plant

Miyazaki Plant



Geothermal power plants are a natural fit for Japan’s rather volcanic location. The subterranean heat is an economical and eco-friendly power source.

Matsukawa Power Station

Onikoube Power Plant



Shinano-gawa power station

Tagokura Power station


Hydroelectric plants utilize flowing water sources to spin turbines usually inside of a dam that the water passes through. All that is needed is a viable water source.


Japan is a world leader in Nuclear power and technology. Nuclear power, although potentially dangerous, is an extremely efficient and clean renewable power source. With over fifty reactors currently in operation, Japan has the third largest nuclear power grid in the world.


Ikata power plant

Ōi Power plant


Fukushima Daiichi Power plant Incident

The Fukushima nuclear power plant suffered catastrophic damage from a large tsunami generated from an undersea earthquake in the pacific on March 11, 2011. The reactors leaked hazardous radiation into the surrounding environment leading to a public evacuation.


Sakura Solar Center

The Solar ark

Solar energy is making advances in the world as it is becoming increasingly cheaper to manufacture solar panels and more cost-effective to maintain solar plants.




Hibikinada Wind Farm

Sakata City Power Station

Wind power plants, commonly known as wind farms, are excellent for a very clean power solution. However, due to the low power output of most turbines, a large area of structures is usually required to produce a viable energy source.
