Vela Solaris at Renewable Energy Exhibition in Japan
The Renewable Energy Exhibition in Tokyo took place from January 31 to February 2, 2024 and we were pleased to be represented as an exhibitor together with our Japanese partner Desun Tech. The exhibition provided a comprehensive overview of the latest trends and developments in the renewable energy sector.
The main trends that became clear at the fair were impressive:
Japan is aiming for climate neutrality by 2050 and this was clearly evident at the fair. Government institutions, which are pursuing projects at regional and municipal level, are looking intensively for solutions. The focus here is particularly on the expansion of photovoltaics. Offshore wind power is also becoming increasingly important. The possibilities of making greater use of geothermal energy and biomass as energy sources were discussed controversially.
Particular attention was paid to districts:
Renewable energy solutions are planned and implemented with a strong focus on districts. The stand of the city of Ishikari in Hokkaido, which is located around 15 km from Sapporo, was particularly impressive. The bay area of Ishikari is home to large data centers that depend on a reliable energy supply. In future, this is to be ensured 100% by a mix of wind, biomass and photovoltaic systems.
Simulation in the planning stage:
The number of visitors grew steadily over the three days and the crowds, especially on the last day, were impressive. We were pleased to be able to make many new and interesting contacts. There was particularly great interest in the use of Polysun in the planning of energy systems for buildings and districts. There are no comparable providers in Japan yet, and the potential for innovative solutions is enormous!
