President / Director-General
Prof. Kenji Yamaji
President/Director-General, Research Institute of Innovative Technology for the Earth (RITE). He graduated and was awarded his degree of Doctor of Engineering from The University of Tokyo. He joined Central Research Institute of Electric Power Industry (CRIEPI) in 1977, and was appointed to Professor, Department of Electrical Engineering, School of Engineering, The University of Tokyo in 1994 and is Professor Emeritus, The University of Tokyo since 2010. He was a Council Member of the Science Council of Japan (SCJ), and Research Supervisor, Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST). His academic field is Energy Systems Engineering and has published more than 100 peer reviewed academic papers, around 100 books including ten single authored books, and also the Lead Author for 3rd and 4th Assessment Reports of IPCC.
Efforts to realize a carbon-neutrality by 2050 are accelerating, and Japan has announced the ambitious goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 46% in 2030 compared to fiscal year 2013 levels. The core of the realization of carbon neutrality is a secondary energy carrier that can be used cleanly and efficiently. At present, electricity plays an active role, and in the future, hydrogen will play an active role for the use of fuel and heat. Electricity and hydrogen can reduce carbon and achieve decarbonization through technological innovation. In addition, if the super-smart society (Society 5.0) progresses, there is a possibility for significant reduction in energy demand through the substitution of energy and materials by information, and the realization of revolutionary energy-saving through electrification and digitization. By combining these processes with technology that captures CO2 from the atmosphere, we can draw a clear picture of how to realize decarbonization

The Energy-history of Japan will be presented here. There have
been energy developments in accordance with Japan's national conditions.
Japan has been developing its own unique technology for this reason. So,the special circumstances regarding future energy development will beconsidered.
