"As the total capacity of solar power generation facilities certified under the feed-in tariff (FIT) scheme rapidly increased to 60,000,000kW or more, the reduction of national burden and the stabilization of power grid will be major challenges," Yamaji said. "The results announced by organizations based in various countries will greatly contribute to such domestic policies on renewable energy and discussions on measures to be taken for power grids."
"To make use of a large amount of renewable energy, it is effective to actively use renewable energy suited to each region such as PV power, geothermal power and biomass, establish networks and reduce fluctuating load on power grids," said Kosuke Kurokawa, co-general chairperson of the committee and specially-appointed professor at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, emphasizing the importance of discussing a wide variety of renewable energies at an international conference.
FREA has also been engaged in the research of networking PV generation facilities and other renewable energy-based power generation facilities. And this will probably discussed at an international conference in the future.
