Kansai Electric develops first wholly owned wind farm

Kanden Energy Development, a subsidiary of Japan's Kansai Electric Power, is developing the utility's first wholly owned wind farm, to be built near Awaji City in Hyogo prefecture. The 24 MW project is planned for 12, 2 MW turbines, but no supplier has yet been selected. Site construction is expected to begin in June and commissioning is slated for December 2010. Currently, Kansai Electric has just 155.4 kW of wind power connected to its system, the least of any Japanese power company. It says it wants to contribute to Japanese efforts to cut CO2 output by 60-80% by 2050, but so far is emphasising biomass, heat pumps and advanced nuclear energy.
