Crucial intelligence to understand the changing dynamics of the Japanese power market


The Japanese power market is undergoing significant change and reform. As government progresses with targets for nuclear restarts, renewable energy and firming capacity, there is opportunity for market participants to be part of the next wave of investment.

This momentum is likely to continue as the market undergoes reform and stakeholders must stay on top of the latest policy and market updates to take advantage of these new revenue streams.


As nuclear and renewable penetration increases throughout Japan, market operators face a challenge to keep the system stable and the lights on. It is crucial for stakeholders to understand how this could impact market dynamics.

The increase in renewable capacity on the system is applying pressure to the business cases of baseload generators whose running hours will decrease, and merchant renewable generators who will likely suffer from price cannibalisation.
