  7. (4) Creation of Initial Demand Market independence Creation of initial demand Technical development Cannot be sold without support ▪ High cost ▪ Competition with existing products ▪ Construction of a total energy system ▪ A lack of social awareness Synergistic effect of mass production and cost reduction This period is important. この時期が重要 :Market scale Development of new products Period of market creation Period of independence and expansion in the market Period of market maturity 7

  8. (5.1)Japan’s Policy Tools for NRE Promotion - Cost Reduction - Output Stability RD&D Sunshine Project/New Sunshine Program - Support for introduction by business sector - Support for residential PV systems - Support for NPOs promotional activities Support for Introduction Support for Promotion of RE in Regional Governments - Support for Developing Regional New Energy Visions - Support for Promotion of Renewable Energy by Regional Governments Voluntary Action by Private Sector to Purchase Renewable Energy Electricity • - Renewable Certificates • Voluntary Action by Power Companies to purchase • Renewable Energy Electricity Renewable Portfolio Standard System • Obligates electricity retailers to supply • certain amount of electricity generated • by renewables Market Expansion by Synergy of These Measures 8

  9. (5.2) Recent Policy Strengthening to Expand NRE Introduction Collaboration among ministries • The entire Government positioned new energy introduction targets in the Global Warming Measures Promotion Outline decided in March 2002. • Especially in the biomass field, systematic collaboration among ministries is important. Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transportation Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry Ministry of the Environment Measures related to construction waste material and sewage sludge Biomass measures related to agriculture, forestry, and fisheries New energy measures Waste measures Support for technological development and experimental testing, and appropriate collaboration in support for individual projects Legal aspect Jan. 2002Added two new energy sources:“biomass” and “snow ice,” to the new energy sources stipulated in the Law concerning Promotion of the Use of New Energy (in fiscal 2002, the Government began supporting projects to introduce these energies). May 2002Establishment of the “Special Measures Law concerning the Use of New Energy, etc., by Electric Retailers”.This Law made it obligatory, starting in April 2003, for electricity retailers to increase their ratio of power generated by new energy sources, such as photovoltaic power, wind power, and biomass.) Collaboration among ministries 9

  10. (6.1) New and Renewable Energy Budget Trend ※ 1 US$ = \106 10

  11. (6.2) Overview of NRE Budget Origin (FY 2004) Petroleum-related Measures Special A/C for Petroleum and Sophisticated Structure of Energy Supply/Demand (Petro: \2,040/kl; LPG: \800/t; LNG: \849/t; Coal: \230/t; etc.) Energy Conservation NatGas Utilization Promotion Environmentally Friendly Utilization of Coal Etc. \87.6B New Energy Utilization \63.5B Regional Power Source Development Special A/C for Electric Power Development Acceleration Measures (Electricity sales: \0.425/kWh) Nuclear Energy Utilization Promotion Hydro/Thermal Energy Utilization Etc. 11

  12. (6.3) NRE Budget Allocation Ⅰ.Technological Development Ⅱ.Demonstrative Testing • Budget for FY2004: • about \42.4 billion ≒ US$400 million • Fundamental investigation • Development for practical application • Budget for FY2004: • about \26.5 billion ≒ US$250 million • Field tests • Demonstrative research Ⅲ. Introduction Promotion (full utilization of market mechanism) • Budget for FY2004: about \92.4 billion ≒ US$872 million • Creation of initial demand for inducing market independency • Creation of environment hospitable to introducing leading-edge new energy systems • Financial support (tax system, fiscal investment and loans) • The Green Purchase Law • Enlightenment and public information activities • Renewable Portfolio Standard ※ 1 US$ = \106 12

  13. (7.1) New and Renewable Energy Introduction Support Measures By offering opportunities to create initial demand, these measures aim to improve the cost effectiveness of new and renewable energy, with costs expected to be reduced in the future through economies of scale. 1.Subsidy Program for Residential PV Systems 2.Project for Promoting the Local Introduction of New Energies 3.Project for Supporting New Energy Enterprises 4.Project for Promoting the Local Deployment of New Energies 5.Project for Promotion of Non-Profit Activities on New Energy and Energy Conservation 6.Project for Supporting Regional Activities for Prevention of Global Warming 7.Project for Establishing New Energy Visions at the Local Level 13
