  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   JA2021-0113

On July 21, 2021, Japan’s Agency of Natural Resources and Energy (ANRE) published the first public draft of its 6th Strategic Energy Plan. As Japan looks to cut its greenhouse gas emissions by 46 percent by 2030, compared to 2013, ANRE aims to double the country’s use of renewable energy for electricity generation from 2019 to 2030. ANRE proposes to significantly revise the 2030 energy mix target relative to its prior 2030 target published in 2018. The main focus of the Plan is on solar and wind, rather than biomass. The Plan does not set targets for transport biofuels.
