The below sampling of our past projects has been selected to give you a flavor for the variety and depth of support we provide to our clients.
The liberalization of the Japanese power market and the increase in power and derivatives trading volume have created opportunities for sophisticated market participants. Our client wanted to understand the Japanese regulatory landscape and create a market entry strategy based on its European know-how, current capabilities, and synergies with its Japanese partner.
Since 2012, renewable asset development in Japan has been driven by the the Feed-in-Tariff (FIT) scheme. The Feed-in-Premium (FIP) scheme is expected to replace FIT and support some renewable asset development from 2022. We helped several clients gain a better understanding of the FIP system and its implications for their businesses.
We performed a comprehensive analysis of government documents on the FIP scheme and covered:
Both the end of the Feed-in-Tariff scheme and the push for carbon neutrality are driving the development of corporate power purchase agreements (CPPAs) in Japan. However, the specific regulations in the Japanese power industry impact both the feasibility of some schemes and the financial returns of the projects.
We performed a comprehensive analysis of the feasibility of corporate PPAs in Japan including:
Japan has pledged carbon neutrality by 2050 and has made hydrogen and ammonia supply chain a pillar of its environmental strategy. Our client plans to develop a hydrogen and ammonia plant powered by renewable energy in remote areas of Japan for which shipping costs are high. The project is planned to be partially funded by government subsidies.
Our client had previously completed one large system installation in Japan and was now interested in Japan’s emerging biomass power generation market. The client wished to confirm the potential of the market and the suitability of its products for the needs of Japanese biomass power generators and to find a distribution partner in the country.
