Opportunities In The Wind Power Market In Japan

Watch this recorded webinar to learn about the recent changes towards pro-wind energy in Japan and the possibility for UK companies to get involved in wind energy projects. 

The Great East Japan earthquake and the subsequent incident at Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in 2011 have brought about big discussions on Japanese energy policy among both the government and the public.

About 50 nuclear power plants in Japan are still under suspension. The current government have proposed the increasing of renewable energy in their long term energy plan and have introduced a new Feed in Tariff scheme. Among several available options of renewable resources Japan has a huge potential for wind power energy, including off shore wind.

The speaker will talk about the current wind power projects in Japan, including the feature of off shore wind projects, and will touch on how UK companies might be able to get involved in these projects in Japan.


The Speaker

The webinar is hosted by Matthew Matsumoto-Prouten, Head of the Manufacturing & Industrial Team at UKTI Japan, and Richard Oppenheim, Head of Energy and Climate Change at British Embassy Tokyo

The speaker is Mr Yukinobu Uchida, Country Manager of Garrad Hassan Japan. He is also one of the members of Japan Wind Power Association, and will share his experience and expertise in the wind energy industry in Japan.


Target Audience

UK companies in the renewable industry, especially wind power, who would like to expand their business into Japan.  Companies with new products for the sector or products currently used in the UK sector that are suitable for export are welcome.


Benefits of Watching

Viewers will be able to learn about the recent changes towards pro-wind energy in Japan, its background, and the possibility for UK companies to get involved in wind energy projects in Japan.

Japan opportunities

Japan is the world’s second largest pharmaceutical market, after the US. It is also recognised as leading the world in the regenerative medicine regulations allowing early access of regenerative medicine and cell therapy products into the market, after Phase II conditional approval. The number of research-based Japanese pharmaceutical companies are actively looking to in-license innovative therapeutic pipelines for the Japanese market and also the state-of-art technologies and services for their drug discovery and development. Oncology is the main area of focus for many of pharmaceutical companies in Japan, but there are also opportunities in other therapeutic areas by more specialised pharma companies.

Korea opportunities

Korea is the 13th largest pharmaceutical market. The biopharmaceutical industry is one of the fastest growing industries in Korea. Korea is the 8th strongest biotechnology nation with high technology and skills, especially in stem cells. Korea conducts more industry-sponsored drug studies than any other Asian countries. There are opportunities for R&D collaboration and technology transfers in the field of oncology, cardiology, drug discovery, metabolic diseases, vaccines, neuroscience, stem cells, cancer theranostics and tissue engineering & regenerative medicine etc. Korean companies are more willing to in-license than before, presenting new opportunities for UK companies.
