Renewable Energy Policy

New Energy Advisory Project

Kanagawa Prefecture has entrusted a non-profit organization (NPO) with providing concrete advice to citizens, on an individual basis, regarding the introduction of alternative energy. From an objective and impartial standpoint, the NPO provides information on and coordinates the introduction of alternative energy in terms of its adequateness, suitable scale, effects, cost, subsidies available, etc.

Kanagawa Prefecture's Green Purchasing Basic Policy

Since fiscal 2006, Kanagawa Prefecture has adopted new requirements on carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions for electric power companies to participate in bids for contracts to supply electricity to the prefectural government's offices, in order to encourage them to be more conscious about the environment. In fiscal 2008, Kanagawa began to apply a green power purchasing program that defines the methods of evaluating power suppliers' environmental consciousness. Power suppliers that are actively engaged in addressing global warming are chosen by integrated evaluation methods and given priority in participating in bids for all the prefecture-owned facilities that need bidding. On a total scale of 100, suppliers are rated on CO2 emission coefficients of the previous fiscal year (maximum 60 points), and their environmental efforts, such as the use of unutilized energy and alternative energy (maximum 40 points). Of the latter 40 points, up to 20 points are given for purchasing green power certificates for electricity generated within the prefecture, with the aim of promoting photovoltaic and other forms of green power in the prefecture. Suppliers are classified into three ranks based on their total scores, to determine their qualification for participating in the bidding. Specifically, suppliers scoring 70 or higher (Rank I) are qualified for participation in bids for all the prefecture-owned facilities. Suppliers scoring 60 to less than 70 (Rank II) are entitled to participate in bids for the prefecture's facilities with contract demand of less than 2,000 kilowatts, and those scoring less than 60 (Rank III) are not qualified for any participation. In this way, Kanagawa aims to differentiate environmentally friendly power suppliers from other suppliers.
