Japan's New Energy and Technology Development Organization (NEDO) announced on June 8, 2009, will soon launch a new version of "+ PV Roadmap 2030", a supplement to the roadmap for technology Solar power generation (photovoltaic or PV) in Japan.
Since its launch in 2004, the original "roadmap PV 2030" has been widely used as a guide for the development of photovoltaic technology in Japan. New review aims to accelerate the adoption of photovoltaic systems, and to clarify the outstanding issues, and explore possible scenarios in the future to reflect changes in the last four years. The report also describes the problems to be solved, and shows the methods that have implications for the industry and the environmental community in mind.
Update the Action Plan sets out the objectives of generation costs 14 yen (U.S. $ 0.14) per kilowatt-hour (kWh) in 2020, equivalent to the cost of electricity for commercial use, and 7 yen ($ 0.07) per kilowatt-hour in 2030, or equivalent to the cost of energy in general. The new route is added to reduce the cost of generating less than 7 yen ($ 0.07) in 2050, and is expected to contribute significantly to the future development of the photovoltaic industry.
