Japan is in the process of restructuring its electricity market, e.g. introducing competition in supply, unbundling, and competitive balancing markets. Germany, as a member state of the European Union, has already restructured its power market in the years since 1998. Both countries, however, will have to develop their electricity markets further to master the energy transition. This concerns particularly the integration of large shares of generation based on mostly variable renewable energy.
Following the 7th GJETC Council Meeting on 23rd/24th September in Tokyo the GJETC is organizing an Outreach Event to discuss this issue with the public:
“Management Options for Unbundled & Secure Electricity Markets with Growing Shares of Renewable Energy –
Needs, Experiences, and Options for Japanese-German Cooperation”
When? Tuesday, September 24th, 14:30-16:30
Where? Institute of Energy Economics Japan (IEEJ), Tokyo
The Outreach Event is intended to provide both strategic and in-depth insights on selected topics related to electricity markets and growing shares of renewable energy production in both countries. The invited experts represent a mix of government, science/academia and the private sector. The input presentations and discussion are intended to lead to a better understanding of the possibilities of bilateral collaboration on the Energy transition.
