Japan’s renewable power in power generation accounted for more than 20% in 2021. The Japanese government proposes to increase the proportion of renewable power generation to 36-38% by 2030 and reduce net greenhouse gas emissions to zero by 2050.
According to Nikkei News, Japan aims to have universal access to flexible solar cells by 2030, with a government plan to support mass production by Japanese companies and their use in public buildings, train stations, schools and other places. The plan spells out government policy to work with companies and other institutions to build supply networks and encourage the widespread use of PV panels.
One version of the plan is to commercialize what is known as calcium titanite cells by 2030. As there are fewer and fewer places to install PV panels in Japan, there is a growing call for “calcium titanium ore solar cells” that can be attached to the roof of a car or the wall of a building. According to the report, these cells are lighter and more flexible than conventional products.

Japan’s large electronic components companies are now actively investing in renewable energy, such as Murata Manufacturing for Sendai Murata Manufacturing and other four factories in Japan installed photovoltaic panels and batteries; Kyocera plans to provide 7% to 8% of electricity consumption by 2030 by the company’s own photovoltaic power generation equipment; TDK in 2021 in India, the construction of its own company dedicated TDK will build its own photovoltaic power plant in India in 2021, and will intensify the development of renewable energy in Japan.
