Nonconventional energy in Japan rising

Dec 24, 1997 01:00 AM

Power generation capacity from alternative energy sources including on-site generation reached 15.52 million kW as of August 1996, or about 7 % the total in Japan, according to a report from the New Energy Foundation.
Cogeneration, that is, the production of two forms of energy such as heat and electricity from a single source, accounts for 28 % of alternative energy capacity, followed by small-scale (less than 30,000 kW) hydroelectric power at 22 %. Solar heating held an 18 % share, photovoltaic power 14 % and waste incineration 9 %.
Of new capacity, 64 % came from small hydroelectric facilities and 22 % from cogeneration. Photovoltaic power capacity jumped from1,000 kW in 1991 to 20,000 kW in 1996. Capacity also rose markedly for wind power, increasing from 1,000 kW to 13,000 kW over the same period.
Statistics are drawn from reports by 3,856 alternative energy organisations nation-wide.
