Description:In order to accelerate the diffusion of new and renewable energy in Japan, NEDO (New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organisation) and METI (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry) started implementing a new yearly bounty system in 2000. The scheme supports companies that use new and renewable energy by providing subsidies. An example is a subsidy for companies that utilise gas-fired co-generation. Funding for this programme in 2000 was approximately 11,5 million yen.
