With a mission of creating green and sustainable energy systems, RENOVA operates its power generation business based on locally entrenched renewable energy resources such as solar, biomass, wind and geothermal power. Aside from Omaezakikou Biomass, RENOVA’s biomass power generation portfolio includes the Akita Biomass power generation facility, which has completed construction and is currently operating smoothly, and the Kanda and Tokushima Tsuda Biomass power generation facilities, which are under construction. RENOVA is committed to developing and managing power plants dedicated to burning wood biomass.
Omaezakikou Biomass, which has begun construction, is a biomass power plant dedicated to wood burning with a generation capacity of 74.95 MW in Omaezaki City and Makinohara City, Shizuoka Prefecture.
