Japan’s renewables market outlook
Japan’s reliance on coal will remain relatively heavy in the next 30 years. Coal, renewables and nuclear restarts will push expensive oil and gas out of the energy mix. By 2050, renewables will account for more than 75% of electricity generation with solar and wind contributing 32% each as compared with 8% in 2019. Electricity demand will drop 10% in the state by 2050.
Japan will become one of the most decentralized power systems in the world with around 30% of the capacity behind-the-meter thanks to strong demand for small-size PV installations and batteries.
