Geothermal is the best form of energy for nations with high volcanic activity such as Japan and other Pacific islands in the Ring of Fire. We maximize the usage of geothermal-based energy with our technical expertise and experience in project development and investment.
The Japan is located in the Pacific orogenic belt (Ring of Fire), one of the most active volcanic zones in the world, together with Alpine-Himalayan belt. More than 100 volcanoes are active in Japan, accounting for 7-8% of the world’s active volcanoes.
The Japanese geothermal power market has tremendous development potential.
- Japan has the third largest amount of
geothermal resources in the world
after the U.S. and
Indonesia, with its
estimated at 23GW.
- Related ministries such as Ministry of the
Environment are moving
and are also actively
- At present, active
generation capacity in Japan
is only 530MW. Japan still has
many potential sites
for geothermal development.
- The Japanese
government ensures that
power companies buy
geothermal electricity at 40JPY/kWh
for 15 years, based on Feed-in tariff.
GDI is recruiting to promote our geothermal business, and accumulating advanced geothermal technology.
GDI is developing geothermal energy all over Japan. We would like you to contact us if you are considering introducing unique geothermal technology to the Japanese market.
