JAPAN SET FOR CLEAN POWER SURGE IN 2024




Japan's utilities are making significant strides in boosting clean electricity output, with the first two months of 2024 showing a notable increase compared to the same period in previous years. According to data from energy think tank Ember, clean electricity output during January and February reached 52.67 terawatt hours (TWh), marking the highest level recorded for that period in at least five years.

This uptick in clean power generation is accompanied by a corresponding decrease in fossil fuel-based generation, which saw a 6% reduction compared to the previous year. This decline brought fossil fuel-based generation to its lowest level since 2019. As a result of these shifts, clean power sources contributed 31.6% of Japan's total electricity supply during the first two months of 2024, up from a 28% share during the same period in 2023. This trend suggests that Japan's utilities are making tangible progress in transitioning towards cleaner and more sustainable energy sources, aligning with broader global efforts to combat climate change and reduce reliance on fossil fuels.
