Features of Business
JRE’s solid competitive advantage in business development and execution capabilities from early development to long-term operation, regardless of project size, arise from diverse human resources from various backgrounds (manufacturers, construction firms, environmental consulting, trading firms, financial institutions, etc.) with the expertise and experience needed for the renewable energy business, along with abundant shareholders' equity and the ability to raise significant funds through arrangement of project financing.
Long term commitment to local communities and the power generation business
In cooperation with landowners of project sites and other local residents, as well as construction firms, financial institutions, and other diverse parties, JRE undertakes projects under autonomous general management that extends from preliminary surveys to business plan formulation, financing, equipment procurement, construction management, and operation/maintenance.
We value continued dialog with local residents from the initial stages of development and during the entire plant life from preliminary surveys to construction and operation after completion of construction, we conduct business so as to earn trust from the community and society.
Through such actions, we act as the operating body to conduct project management with long-term consistency, enabling the realization of power generation projects with a high level of certainty.
We continue to own and operate the power plants that we develop, and conduct stable, long-term operation of plants with top priority on safety.
Expansion of our business foundation through acquisitions
We leverage the expertise we have built up through the development and operation of power plans to actively undertake the acquisition of existing power generation facilities, with the aim of expanding our business foundation.
Business processes and main stakeholders
Initiatives to create synergies among business domains
In entering into the biomass power generation business, we formed a business partnership with Eco Green Co., Ltd. (current Eco Green Holdings Co., Ltd.), which manufactures and sells wood chips made from construction waste as a fuel provider to enable us to build a solid and stable long term sustainable operation from fuel procurement to power generation.
Utilizing the development, financing, and operational expertise that we have accumulated through solar and wind power generation projects, we will extend these horizontally into other power generation projects, creating synergies through the diversification of power sources.
Mechanisms to support sustainable growth
As a company engaged in a business with societal and public relevance, compliance with laws/regulations is a top priority and take a proactive approach to EHS (Environment, Health, and Safety) and CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility). Through the renewable energy-based power generation business, JRE will work toward the mutual prosperity of employees, business partners, local communities, and all other stakeholders, and will contribute to the realization of a sustainable society.
JRE's main businesses
Solar power generation business
Solar power is method of generating power by directing solar panels toward the sun to convert solar energy to electricity. It does not generate power at night or in places with insufficient sunlight, but requires no fuel to generate power.
Wind power generation business
Wind power is a method that uses the power of wind to turn blades and transmits that rotational motion to a generator to create electricity. The amount of power generation varies with the strength of the wind, but with sufficient wind speed the method can generate power both day and night, without requiring fuel.
Biomass power generation business
"Biomass" refers to resources derived from plants. It is a power generation method that burns wood waste, scrap wood from construction, and other discarded resources to turn a turbine and a generator to yield electricity. As the wood or other fuel absorbs CO2 during its growth period, the method does not generate CO2 over its life cycle.
