The Japanese government is taking steps to introduce solar power into its government office buildings to ensure energy security and to promote renewables. In this initiative, the Japanese government introduced 410 kW capacity of solar power in thirteen eligible offices. The amount of electricity production is expected to be 0.43 million kWh and it will provide 0.15% of electricity consumed in these buildings. This programme is also encouraging other institutions to introduce solar power.


Japanese government had introduced 1,156 kW capacity of solar power to its office buildings until March 2013.
