Japan Power Rental Market Analysis & Opportunities 2023-2029: By 2024, There Will Be ~700 Solar Projects in Japan, Driving Demand for the Lease of Power Equipment

Dublin, June 09, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Japan Power Rental Market - Strategic Assessment & Forecast 2023-2029" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The Japan power rental market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.59% from 2022 to 2029.

Government measures to prevent and mitigate natural disasters will accelerate rental power equipment demand. In 2021, the government launched a five-year plan to accelerate emergency measures for national resilience, contributing to the prevention and mitigation of disasters to have a project budget of USD 117.2 billion.

In March 2022, Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) allotted its first Power Crunch alert after an earthquake hit in Tokyo Region. In June 2022, Mitsubishi and Japanese Utility Kyushu Electric Power Co collaboration stated that they teamed up to use grid-scale battery storage to reduce the impact of solar curtailment on the island of Kyushu in southern Japan.

The government is taking necessary actions for disaster management, which prompts the demand for power equipment in the Japan power rental market. According to Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA), in 2022, Japan witnessed eight earthquakes of five or more magnitude. Since the country is prone to frequent natural disasters such as earthquakes, storms, and floods, power equipment is necessary to regain access to power during a blackout or an outage in those disaster-prone areas in the country. This will likely create demand for rental power equipment in Japan.

Mining Exploration Program Along With Clean Energy Strategies in Japan to Push the Demand for Leasing Power Equipment

  • Amazon will purchase green energy from Clean Energy Connect via the Japanese trading business Itochu for its operations. For this reason, Itochu will build renewable energy supply networks in America and Japan. Corporate power purchase agreements (CPPAs) have been signed with Clean Energy Connect (CEC), a member of the Itochu group, to supply Amazon with renewable energy for 20 years. CEC will spend over 10 billion yen in the grand scheme to build Amazon's modest solar power installations. By 2024, there will be roughly 700 solar projects in Japan, producing about 38,000 kilowatts of green energy. One of the largest CPPAs in Japan is anticipated to be the one with Amazon.
