To promote new energy sources, NEDO subsidises renewable energy projects at the local level. Public entities and NGOs are eligible for a subsidy to promote PV, biomass, waste and wind power generation, fuel cells, solar thermal, natural gas co-generation, waste thermal, waste fuel production, biomass thermal use, clean energy vehicles and water-source heat pumps. The subsidy rate is up to 50% of the cost for installation, deployment, promotion of public awareness and related activities.


NEDO ended this subsidy programme in March 2009. After that, NEPC had executed it from April 2009 to March 2013.
