Highlights

  • Nuclear remains a key pillar of the energy supply.
  • Ten vertically integrated private companies account for around two thirds of the power production.
  • JXTG Nippon Oil & Energy is the largest oil company, accounting for 50% of gasoline sales.
  • Tokyo Gas and Osaka Gas account for 70% of the gas supply.
  • Crude oil imports are decreasing since 2000.
  • LNG imports are declining rapidly since 2016.
  • Japan is the second largest importer of coal.
  • The country ranks second in the world for solar PV capacity (62 GW in 2019); solar represents 7% of the power mix.
  • The price of electricity in industry is almost 30% higher than in EU countries.
  • Energy consumption is decreasing and was in 2019 16% lower than in 2010.
  • The energy intensity to the GDP has been decreasing at a very rapid pace of 3%/year since 2010.
  • The country is facing pressure to reach its 2030 CO2 emissions and power mix targets, leading to tighter regulations for coal projects and the development of projects using CCS.
  • The gas import capacity is expected to increase since the Government is encouraging fuel switching to gas.

Abstract

  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The METI, Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, is in charge of the energy sector through ANRE, Agency for Natural Resources and Energy. ANRE has three departments: the Energy Conservation and Renewable Energy Department, the Natural Resources and Fuel Department, and the Electricity and Gas Industry Department.

  • Energy Companies

    Gas:

    Three companies account for more than 80% of the gas supply: Tokyo Gas (15 bcm of sales in FY 2019), Osaka Gas (7.9 bcm in FY 2019),and Toho Gas (3.9 bcm in FY 2019). There are around 200 gas companies, 85% of which are private; they are grouped together in JGA, Japan Gas Association.

  • Energy Supply

    Gas:

    Japan is the world's largest LNG importer. Imports increased rapidly between 2010 and 2014 in order to compensate the drop in nuclear production. Since then, imports declined by 3.3%/yearto 98 bcm in 2019. LNG imports represent 22% of the world's total LNG trade.

  • Energy Prices

    Electricity:

    Despite reductions imposed by the METI, the price of electricity in industry is still high in comparison to other OECD countries (27% higher than in the EU in 2019), but closer for households (7% higher than in the EU). Prices were US$16.4c/kWh for industry and US$25.4c/kWh for households in 2019.

  • Energy Consumption

    Energy consumption per capita decreased from 4.1 toe in 2000 to 3.3 toe in 2019 (9% above the EU level). Electricity consumption per capita was around 7400 kWh in 2019 (34% above the EU level).

    Total energy consumption has been decreasing since 2010 (by 2%/year on average) to 420 Mtoe in 2019.

    Graph: CONSUMPTION TRENDS BY ENERGY SOURCE (Mtoe)

  • Issues & Prospects

    Using its Global Energy Forecasting Model POLES (baseline called Enerblue 2019), Enerdata foresees the share of oil to account for 30% of the primary energy consumption by 2040, while the share of natural gas would be around 25% and the share of coal around 13%. The remainder (32%) would be covered by nuclear, renewables and biomass.
