“Just Transition” is an important, brand new concept to implement policies towards decarbonisation of the power sector in Japan.

Commentary (Op. Ed)
10月26日に行われた、菅内閣総理大臣の所信表明演説で「2050年脱炭素社会の実現」を目指すとした方針についての、IGESコメントです。 脱炭素化の方向性と時間軸を明確に示すことは、企業や投資家の長期的視点に立った経営・投資判断を支えることにつながります。また、2050年脱炭素化は、パリ協定が目指す1.5℃目標にも整合する非常に野心的な目標で、総理大臣自らが2050年脱炭素化社会の実現を宣言したことをIGESは大いに歓迎します。 一方で、新型コロナウイルスによって減速した日本経済の立て直しに向けた経済復興策は、欧州における「欧州グリーンディール」のような、経済刺激策を気候変動やその他の環境課題への対策と結び付ける対策が乏しく、令和3年度予算編成におけるグリーンディールの作り込みが急務です。...

本分析では、北海道地域の275kVの基幹送電線を対象に、実潮流に基づく送電線運用のもとで、系統運用シミュレーションを行った。シナリオの前提条件としては、合理的と想定される既存の導入ポテンシャル推計結果に基づいて、系統に接続される風力発電の設備容量を1,950MW(2018年度450MWの4.3倍、発電電力量ベースでは7.8倍)、太陽光発電の設備容量を1,855MW(2018年度1,605MWの1.16倍、発電電力量ベースでは1.2倍)と想定した。それ以外の発電・送電設備は2018年度と同様とした。電力需要量や電力需要の時間及び地理的分布も2018年度時点のものとした。また、石炭火力・水力・原子力発電について、発電種別の調整力や稼働の有無といった電源運用の観点から3つのシナリオを設定し...
