RENOVA develops and operates multiple renewable energy power sources (“multiple energy sources”), including solar, wind, biomass, geothermal and hydro.
In addition to the viewpoint of fully utilizing existing energy resources in each region, it is possible to provide more stable power supply and business operations by possessing a range of power sources with both fluctuating power output (such as solar and wind power) and stable power output (such as biomass, geothermal and hydro power).
We are also promoting new businesses such as storage batteries that contribute to the expansion of these renewable energy power sources, green hydrogen and ammonia and biomass-derived fuels that contribute to the decarbonization of a wide range of industries other than electric power.
