The J-POWER Group is doing its best to curb CO2 emissions by building low-emission power sources in the form of nuclear power stations and making effective use of such renewable energy as hydro-, wind, biomass, and geothermal power, while also working to perfect gas-turbine combined-cycle generation, which promises high efficiency of energy use.
The J-POWER Group has been moving forward with application of the Kyoto Mechanisms, with an emphasis on CDM Project development. The CDM (Clean Development Mechanism) and JI (Joint Implementation) are essential mechanisms for minimizing Japan’s economic burden and keeping Japanese industry internationally competitive, and the J-POWER Group is actively involved in efforts to earn and make use of carbon credits through these programs.
