U.S.-Japan Renewable Energy Policy Business Roundtable and “Touhoku Tour”

December 3-7, 2012

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to participate in a U.S.-Japan business roundtable in Tokyo, Japan focused on renewable energy policy, organized by the U.S. Department of Commerce, U.S. Department of Energy, and Japan’s Ministry of Economy Trade and Industry.  It will be followed by a special study tour to Fukushima and Sendai prefectures in the “Touhoku” (Northeast) Region, affected by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.  U.S. companies in the renewable energy and smart grid industries are expected to benefit by:

  • Gaining a deeper understanding of the changing Japanese policy and regulatory landscape;
  • Interacting with policymakers and representatives from the private sector in Japan;
  • Enhancing the bilateral Energy Policy Dialogue by identifying key policy issues and sharing best practices; and
  • Seeing firsthand how Northeast Region communities are incorporating renewable energy in their reconstruction efforts.

Space is limited to 20 companies.  The application deadline is November 9, 2012.  Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis starting next week, so you are encouraged to apply as early as possible.  Please visit the website for detailed information on the participation fees and how to apply:  http://export.gov/reee/eg_main_054052.asp
