Contributing to Japan's growth through solar power generation businessCanadian Solar Projects K.K.
The background of the rapid growth of the renewable energy business is related to the magnitude of environmental burden and the anxiety regarding safety of old-fashioned energy represented by fossil fuels and nuclear power. Human energy demand has increased rapidly with no end to growth in sight. While technological innovation will seek to evolve the effective use of energy, it is obvious that energy demand will continue to increase in the future as economies around the world develop and demand many activities.
Under these circumstances, solar power generation has secured a certain position as the flagship of renewable energy. Canadian Solar Projects K.K. quickly introduced the advanced technology of solar cell module developed by Canadian Solar Inc., to the power generation business in Japan, and is committed to developing environmentally friendly, safe and stable energy in Japan.
We have the backing of a global leader with strong business and network which is committed to contributing to the growth of Japan.
