Japan's role in the energy transition

As a key energy transition market, Japan is on the edge of a transformation. While gas power and nuclear will continue to play a critical role, the country is focused on accelerating the adoption of key renewable energy technologies. GE Vernova Japan stands ready to face the challenge.

Global challenges, local impacts

With the global energy landscape facing a 75% increased power demand by 2050, Japan is also seeing its own set of challenges.

Local presence

Over the last 130 years, GE Vernova has contributed towards Japan’s stable power supply by providing power generation equipment including gas turbines, steam turbines, nuclear reactors, hydro and wind turbines. The collaboration with JERA dates back to 1927 when the company was formerly Chubu and Tepco. Additionally, GE Vernova has a longstanding cooperation with Toshiba since 1875, fostering numerous milestones together. GE Vernova currently powers ¼ of the country’s current installed capacity of onshore wind, and Haliade-X, the world’s biggest offshore wind turbines set to begin operations targeting 2030.
