Greeting from the governor
It will soon be seven years and eight months since the Great East Japan Earthquake hit our country. This year, we are happy to hold the seventh round of the Renewable Energy Industrial Fair (REIF Fukushima) with the participation of 202 companies and organizations, the largest number ever. We would like to express our deep gratitude to all the exhibitors as well as all the individuals and organizations concerned for their support and cooperation.
Since the earthquake, with the fundamental goal of creating a society not dependent on nuclear energy, Fukushima Prefecture has promoted renewable energy as a main pillar of its reconstruction efforts. Specifically, we have nurtured and accumulated renewable-energy-related industries in our prefecture by helping companies build networks between themselves, develop technologies, expand sales channels, and enhance collaboration with overseas partners.
To further accelerate these measures, our prefecture established “Energy Agency Fukushima” last year as a specialized organization that comprehensively supports various stages of renewable energy promotion efforts, from research and development to practical applications to marketing. By so doing, we have been developing an environment that constantly generates new made-in-Fukushima technologies, products, and business models one after another.
In REIF Fukushima 2018, to nurture and accumulate renewable energy industries so that we can achieve the goal of “Fukushima, the frontrunner in the field of renewable energy,” we focus on the three pillars of the Fukushima Plan for a New Energy Society, (1) expanded introduction of renewable energy, (2) model construction of a hydrogen-based society, and (3) building smart communities. In line with these main themes, we organize exhibitions of cutting-edge technologies and products of many companies and research institutions, business meetings, and seminars concerning the latest trends. It is our hope that all the participants and visitors will find these events worth attending.
We look forward to seeing you during REIF Fukushima 2018.
