Event Summary:

IPFA Japan: Tokyo: Financing the Wind Power Transition

Development of the Japanese off-shore wind sector is poised for significant growth following "The Act on Promotion of Use of Marine Areas for Development of Marine Renewable Energy Generation Facilities" was enacted in November of 2018 and enforced on April 1, 2019.

This law, together with continued refinements to the Japanese feed-in-tariff are expected to help boost the development of wind power projects off the coastal areas controlled by prefectural governments.

This event will look into these laws together with other legal issues that will also play a factor in the growth of this sector in Japan, from a variety of perspectives, including those of developers, investors, lenders, regulatory officials and legal counsel.
