, the long-term derelict land
generally for the construction of industrial parks, but now is attracting many
investors to take advantage of the advantages of the new government support
policies, with the construction of solar power plants. Japan
Although some Japanese sunshine time only six hours a day, but this renewable energy prices prompted investors to invest heavily in the solar panel power industry, with the Japanese rural depopulation, the factories that were transferred overseas, specified in a relatively optimistic for the industrial development of the land is idle.
Under the laws of
solar project usually does not require time-consuming environmental assessment,
and tend to spend less than a year's time will be able to build. This makes the
risk of investing in solar projects smaller than the risk of investment in wind
power, and more time-consuming approval procedures to build wind power
By the end of October, the Japanese government has installed capacity of 2.56 billion watts of renewable energy projects approved under the new law. This is beyond the government identified in up to the March 2013 year to reach the target of 2.5 billion watts. In 87% of the total installed capacity of renewable energy, solar power.
Still, some skeptics say, there will not be too far in the renewable energy to meet the huge demand for electricity in
Renewable energy generating capacity (excluding hydropower) the proportion of
the total generating capacity of about 2%, and by 2002 this figure is less than
1%. The Japanese government plans to 2030 increased by 8 times. Japan
Able to access the high-capacity transmission lines is to determine the location of the key to build solar panel price power stations. Otherwise, the the changing electricity production to renewable energy resources can not be incorporated into the power grid, grid connection works may not be carried out due to the cost is too high.
Japan's northernmost island of Hokkaido's port city thatch, animal husbandry, one in charge of the economy and the industry's official Cai Tian (sound) said: "The land here is very flat, low temperature makes solar panels can be a very high conversion rate of power generation," he said, Tomakomai It also hopes to attract investors to the development of solar-related industries, for example, to engage in R & D center. In addition to the tax revenue for local governments, brought to the land owners rent solar project investment can give the rare new opportunities to create employment opportunities.
As for how much land can be used for the construction of the PV inverter project, the country has not yet announced the statistics. The Government has not even sure how much land has been developed and built in the industrial park, how much land is still idle. However, as can be seen from the site of the city and county, people have expressed support for the construction of solar power stations.
Marubeni, a company spokesman said: "Many of the people who have idle land contact us. Surprisingly, there is a lot of land available." Earlier this month, the company of the
island of Kyushu
began to build an installed capacity of 81.5 megawatts of solar power plants.
The uncertainty of the investment in solar power stations is the adequacy of
the sun. Japan
