What kind of people are participating at the moment?

Companies that are interested in renewable energy, companies aiming for commercialization, as well as universities and research institutes that are researching about renewable energy are participating.
This network was founded as “Fukushima Prefecture Renewable Energy Industry Study Group” in 2012. It consists of 680 member companies, organizations and individuals both local and outside the prefecture.

We held a seminars as the introduction of the power plant with the windmill manufacturers and succeeded in connecting them with the local enterprises during the individual interview session.
