What is RE100?
The goal is to seek 100% renewable energy declarations by companies, as well as to promote and encourage the use of renewable energy.
Moving Toward a Decarbonized Society Reducing CO2
The Basic Energy Plan, currently under formulation, calls for expanding the introduction of renewable energy sources to achieve the RE100 targets.
RE100 and electricity procurement for a decarbonized society?
As of February 2021, as many as 288 companies have announced their participation in the RE100 in the world.
In Japan, more than 50 companies including Ricoh are participating.
By country, Japan is proud the second largest number of participants in the world after the United States.
We can see Japan’s positive attitude toward RE100 from this.
Corporate Initiatives for RE100
Amazon has already deployed 100,000 electric vehicles for product delivery, and purchased more than 1,800 electric vehicles in August 2020, primarily for use in Europe.
At Aeon, about 90% of CO2 emissions are derived from electric power, so we are promoting the introduction of energy-saving equipment and solar power generation equipment in their shops.
Hiraiwa Netsugaku initiatives for RE100 by Using Solar Power
selfconsumption solar power generation systems.
We consistently perform all from analysis of the current power usage status to support as design and construction, maintenance after introduction, and effect verification.
