Changes in the Japanese Energy Market with Electricity Deregulation (Mr. Masakazu Toyoda, Chairman & CEO, The Institute of Energy Economics, Japan)

post date : 2016.02.26

president_toyoda2016 is being called a year of major energy reform, with complete deregulation of the sale of electricity to low-voltage customers such as personal households and small businesses, which account for 40% of total electricity consumption and is estimated as a 7.5 trillion yen market. With the expectation that corporations will begin choosing their electricity provider, competition between existing power companies and new participants in the market is heating up.


The FPCJ has invited Mr. Masakazu Toyoda, Chairman and CEO of The Institute of Energy Economics, Japan, to discuss how the Japanese energy market will change with the deregulation of electricity. Mr. Toyoda is also a member of the METI Agency for Natural Resources and Energy Advisory Committee for Natural Resources and Energy Strategic Policy Committee.
