|3. Environment: Energy Self-Sufficient Demo Project|
Gifu prefecture located in the Greater Nagoya launched five next-generation energy infrastructure demonstration projects that combine multiple energy sources and new energy technologies. The semi-mountainous area project is at a hundred-year-old private house in the Meiho area of the city of Gujo, which is equipped with solar power generation technology, a fuel cell, a storage battery, and a small-scale hydraulic power generator and wood-burning stove, both which utilize the river and forest resources abundantly available in the area.
Gifu will verify energy efficiency, cost performance, and the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions under real-life conditions in this house, and then publish the results. As there are many communities in the prefecture that may become isolated in the event of a natural disaster, it hopes to prove that such self-sufficient energy supply systems are effective and probably should be included as one of a number of disaster-relief preparation measures.
