Chubu Electric Power Group Report 2021(Integrated Report)

StrategyBusiness impact assessmentI Recognizing climate change risks and opportunities as a key element of its business strategy, the Chubu Electric Power Group formulates and executes specic measures based on the impact assessment on them.Changes in the external environmentImpact on the GroupAssessmentImpactMeasures1.5˚C scenarioResponses to risks and opportunities associated with the transition to a carbon-free societyIncrease in operation cost due to investments in decarbonization and the introduction of carbon pricing*1RisksOpportunitiesLargeLow carbonization/decarbonization of power sources• Expansion of renewable energy development (in Japan and overseas)• Safer and more economical nuclear power generation and the effective use thereof• More efficient thermal power generation and the gradual retirement of low-efficient coal thermal power generation by 2030• Proactive investment for development of renewable energy overseas (Europe, Asia, North America) Wide-area utilization of power sources and the progress of local production for local consumption • Increasing efficiency and resilience of the entire power supply network• Building facilities that take advantage of the decentralized system based on local production and consumption and optimizing their operation• Adapting to the expansion and uneven distribution of large-scale renewable energy in the trunk line system and providing stable supply nationwide and pursuing wide-area advantagesProvide services in our triad of “energy saving,” “energy creation” and “energy activation”• “Energy saving” by streamlining customers’ energy use through provision of solutions • “Energy creation” by expanding installation of renewable energy source equipment and utilizing unused energy• “Energy activation” by building frameworks including demand response for easier use of energy Promotion of technological research and development• Research and development that contribute to low carbonization of electricity and to the promotion of energy saving and switching to electricity• Research and development that contribute to decarbonization such as the use of ammonia and hydrogen and CCUS*2 technologies *2 Carbon dioxide Capture, Utilization and StorageControl increasing costs through innovationOpportunitiesMediumAn increase in systems maintenance cost due to an expansion of decentralized power sourcesA reduction in wheeling revenue due to a reduction in power ow through power transmission/distribution systemsRisksOpportunitiesLargeRising needs for the use of carbon-free energyExpanding demand for electrication OpportunitiesLargeA rise in nancing costsRisksSmallEngagement with investors and financial institutions and diversification of fund procurement methods• Ongoing communication concerning initiatives to promote decarbonization• Effective use of Green Bonds, etc.4˚C scenarioResponses to physical riskAn increase in costs for proactive facility upgradesAn increase in recovery costsRisksLargeStrengthening resilience of facilities and systems• Strengthening resilience through the effective use of decentralized systems• Disaster prevention (trimming and culling of trees in advance, etc.)• Early recovery (coordination with local governments, other power companies, etc.)• Promotion of elimination of utility poles• Application to flood control of dams for hydroelectric power generationPolicyRaising non-fossil energy percentage and emission reduction goalsTechnologyEvolution of low-carbon/carbon-free technologies• Renewable energy• Low carbonization of thermal power generation• Safer nuclear power generation• Energy management (i.e., storage of electricity)ReputationDivestment of companies that are reluctant to adopt decarbonizationMarketCustomers will become more environment-orientedIntroduction of carbon-free technologiesRising needs for decarbonization to energyIndicators and goalsGoals and measures*1 Achieving a reduction of 10 million tons of CO2 emissions by utilizing nuclear power generation and renewable energy power sources is equivalent to reducing the impact of 140 billion yen.* Estimated based on the rate of US$130/t-CO2, which is the assumed carbon price in 2030 in developed countries according to the IEA Net Zero by 2050They are listed in the Roadmap for Zero Emissions Challenge 2050.P21StormExtreme typhoons and the like will occur more frequentlyFlood and landslide disasters will intensifyMore frequent occurrences of abnormal weather due to rising temperature24Chubu Electric Power Group Report 2021Top CommitmentValue CreationClimate ChangeBusiness ActivitiesStrategyGovernanceHuman ResourcesFinancial / Corporate DataDisclosure Based on TCFD Recommendations
