Green collaboration between Japan and Norway

The spotlight will be on environment-friendly energy at this year’s Japan-Norway Science Week. The event, organised for the third time, will be held in Tokyo 27–28 May. 

It is the third time the Japan-Norway Science Week is being organized. Due to the Japanese wide-ranging renewable-energy effort in the wake of the nuclear accident in Fukushima, the event is more relevant than ever.

 Julie Christensen, Research Council Norway“Japan is an important driver of technology in a number of sectors, and Science Week provides a golden opportunity for Norwegian research groups seeking to strengthen existing cooperation and establish new relations,” says Julie Christiansen, who coordinates the Research Council of Norway’s cooperation with Japan. 

Japan is currently working to introduce a reform of its energy system. Energy is thus a natural topic for an event such as Science Week. Prior to the Fukushima accident, approximately one-fourth of Japan’s energy needs were met by nuclear power. The country has since closed down nearly all of its nuclear power stations.  

 

Wind power on the agenda

"Research cooperation between Norway and Japan in the areas of wind power, including offshore wind, is well established," says Trygve Riis, special adviser at the Division for Energy, Resources and the Environment at the Research Council. "One of the Science Week sessions will be dedicated to this area."

Other sessions will address: Smart Cities, energy systems/smart grids, carbon capture and storage (CSS), energy, the environment and society, hydrogen.
