Abstract

While global warming has become more deeply concerned, it is vital for Japan, which has world's top energy efficiency, to proactively adopt renewable energy in consumer category to shift from high dependency of fossil fuels. As for such approach, we have made comprehensive analysis and determination for usage of solar thermal energy. Although it is one of the most effective green technology to reduce GHG emission today, number of installation in Japan has been declining as well as its market shrinking causing withdrawal of manufacturer from the division. On the other hand, installation of such equipments in abroad has been growing which tightened competition resulting in improvements of cost performance and technology, and eventually price-reduction. Thus, we have completed verification test of foreign-made solar heat panels on behalf of Ministry of the Environment and examined its usage, economic impact and influence of installation in order to stimulate domestic market of solar heat panel.
