Japan: Stagnating Market despite Renewables’ Image Boost

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on October 30, 2012

The solar thermal market in Japan has not profited significantly from the energy crisis after Fukushima in March 2011. The latest statistics of the Japanese Solar System Development Association (SSDA) show that the number of newly installed collector area in 2011 was only slightly higher than in 2010. In fact, the 2011 market volume of 136,600 m² was merely 5 % above the previous year (129,839 m²). The chart depicts the SSDA market statistics for the last four years, including the share of each solar thermal technology.
