Japan’s Fujitsu To Go 100% Renewable By 2050

Japanese electronics company Fujitsu intends to invest in clean energy, energy management and power storage solutions as it aims to switch to 100% renewables power by 2050.

The company has joined the Climate Group’s RE100 initiative in line with the plan, which includes an interim renewables target of 40% by 2030, the Climate Group said on Friday.

Fujitsu plans to use a combination of mechanisms to achieve its goal, among which will be signing power purchase agreements (PPAs) for green electricity, buying renewable energy certificates and installing on-site photovoltaic (PV) and energy storage capacity. Overall, it will boost the use of renewables-sourced electricity for its business, both at home and internationally, starting with data centres outside Japan. Some of those facilities are already using 100% renewable electricity.

Separately, the Japanese group will invest in research and development (R&D) initiatives and technology trials in the renewables field, according to the statement.
