5 SOURCES OF ENERGY

Supplying sustainable energy to match ever-changing demand, requires combining energy sources (the energy mix) based on each resources’ distinctive characteristic. For example, wind and solar generation are subject to the vagaries of nature and thus affect the supply of electricity. At GPSS we specialize in developing a broad mix from five technologies to realize the goal of delivering a sustainable lifestyle with safe and reliable energy for all.

Solar

Solar power relies on hours-of-sunshine, thus is considered a variable power source with a low capacity factor of around 13%. GPSS aims to improve generation efficiency and power output by incorporating global best-practice engineering and construction techniques, minimizing the cost of electricity produced.

Wind

Wind generation in Japan has been perceived as difficult due to the lack of a consistent prevailing wind. The lowering of costs and gaining the trust of local stakeholders remain important issues. We aim to use our experience in running community joint ventures and combine this with the buying power and engineering expertise of the European majors to develop wind farms. This is also complemented by our strengths in financing and developing projects.

Hydro

Hydroelectric generation has a long history, however, smaller scale reserves have traditionally been difficult to commercialize, so many resources have been left untapped. By carrying out EPC in-house, GPSS can lower the initial capital costs, thereby allowing us to develop previously uncommercial projects.

Geothermal

Geothermal energy operates as a base-load power source, running 24/7, maintaining a very high capacity factor like nuclear power. It requires the securing of high-temperature geothermal resources. Geoscience and development teams work closely together to improve resource development efficiency. We are developing projects nationwide through forging long-term partnerships with local communities to create generation businesses.

Biogas + WTP

Regionally sourced organic material (WTP: Waste-to-power) can be used as feed stock to generate electricity. Using our expertise to transform WTP product into an exploitable form, we aim to create a long-term resource cycle, together with the local community.
