Japan Energy-Short: Savings Now, Eyes Renewable Future - 53 GW installations by 2030
Japan has aggressively sought to upgrade its solar potential—a cause taken up byJapan PM, Mr. Kan before he survived a no-confidence vote earlier this month. The country has set a goal of increasing solar photovoltaics, mostly in rooftop panels, from 3,500 megawatts in 2010 to 53,000 megawatts by 2030. Beyond Mr. Kan's target of powering 10 million homes by 2020, there would be enough solar photovoltaics to power 18 million Japanese homes by 2030.
