Japan leads world in energy efficiency

24.04.2008: Japan leads world in energy efficiency

HANNOVER MESSE 2008, 21 to 25 April

* Japan demands 50% worldwide reduction in greenhouse gas emission levels by 2030 at World Energy Dialogue conference

* Industrial nations, including Germany, struggle to catch up

Hannover, Germany. At the third World Energy Dialogue (22 - 23 April) Masashi Nakano, Japan's Senior Vice Minister of the Economy, demanded a 50% reduction in worldwide emission levels for greenhouse gases by the year 2030. Japan is already the world's most energy-efficient nation and is making a concerted effort to extend its global leadership.

Just a month ago in March, Japan passed its ambitious basic energy plan entitled the "Cool Earth Road Map". "Japan already has a national strategy, which is an exception and exemplary achievement internationally," commented the Chairman of the World Energy Dialogue conference, Prof. Dr. Klaus Töpfer. A key tool in increasing energy efficiency in Japan is the country's "Top Runner" program, which provides a key stimulus for energy-efficient product development and market introduction on the demand as well as the supply side.

By 2030 the International Energy Agency (IEA) predicts an increase of 50% in the level of primary energy demand. "Providing the additionally required quantity represents a gigantic task. We will need to build a sustainable bridge to get from our current economic models to a low-emission future," declared Jürgen R. Thumann, President of the Federation of German Industries (BDI), continuing:

"Our power plant builders offer power plants with an efficiency coefficient of well over 50 percent, and this can be improved on. We already possess a sophisticated cogeneration strategy. With combined heat and power plants of this type, we could achieve efficiency coefficients of over 90 percent."

Thumann sees Germany in a leadership role in the use of renewable energy, demanding a concerted modernization drive for all forms of energy generation as well as the upgrading of networks for enhanced energy efficiency.

"It is a joint challenge to the industrial as well as the emerging nations to accelerate our transition to low-emission energy providers," stated Dr. Antonio Pflüger from the International Energy Agency. Despite different policies and technological approaches, this position achieved a broad consensus among the audience of leading industrial representatives from around the world.

The focus of the 3rd World Energy Dialogue conference was on the energy-efficient upgrading of power plants and networks against a background of acute climate protection challenges as well as the growing energy appetites of markets like China and India.

Five innovative companies received an international "Energy Efficiency Award" at World Energy Dialogue for exemplary projects devoted to enhancing energy efficiency. The award was offered by the German energy agency dena in cooperation with KfW Bank and Deutsche Messe.
