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.

2018年11月に成立し、2019年4月に施行された「海洋再生可能エネルギー発電設備の整備に係る海域の利用の促進に関する法律」により、一般海域の利用についての規制が統一されるなど、日本の洋上風力発電事業の導入が大きく前進致しました。

本セミナーは、洋上風力発電事業に携わる行政機関、事業者、金融機関、投資家や弁護士など、様々なプレイヤーの視点から、現状の問題点や今後の見通しなどについて検討して参ります。

言語は英語及び日本語となりますが、同時通訳が入る予定です。
