Chubu Electric Power Co.,Inc.
At Chubu Electric Power, environmental conservation efforts including global warming measures are one of our important business challenges. As part of development of renewable energy which is friendly to the global environment, we have decided to develop the first 100% single fuel firing power generation facility of wood biomass fuel at Chubu Electric Power.
At Yokkaichi Thermal Power Station, biomass single fuel firing power generation facility which uses wood pellet and palm coconut shell as fuel and has power output of 49,000kW will be newly installed. This development plan projects reduction of approximately 160,000t of CO2 emission per year.
We will advance the plan with understanding and support from the local community and parties concerned.
