Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


OVERVIEW: Renewable energy is being introduced throughout the world. Installation of wind power generation systems in particular is anticipated to expand further in Japan, driven by factors such as the ability to install in mountainous terrain and the prospect of offshore wind farms, and also by the introduction of feed in tariffs in July 2012. Hitachi, Ltd. and Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd. have already jointly developed a 2-MW downwind wind power generation system(1), (2). By combining the two companies' downwind turbine technologies with Hitachi's existing technologies for power control, Hitachi has established the capabilities to deliver total solutions that extend from generation to systems for the supply of stable electric power.
