What you need to know about the market

  • Japan's electricity mix is pivoting from fossil fuels, which represent the majority of the generation mix, to renewables like solar and wind, but it faces grid integration hurdles.
  • The phase-out of feed-in tariffs for renewables in favour of market mechanisms—such as feed-in premium subsidies, long-term decarbonisation auctions, and corporate PPAs—is driving a new wave of investments in renewables, storage, and decarbonised thermal assets.
  • In addition to onshore deployment, Japan is progressing ambitious offshore wind targets of 30–45 GW of offshore wind by 2040, with several government auction rounds already announced and underway.
