||[What we do]
New Energy Research Institute (NERI) is a network of human resources engaged in the research and development of new energies.
We offer support, consultations and carry out collaborative research with organizations that are conducting R & D and/or planning to venture into the market.
We are equipped to give a range of multi-pronged advice to promote the R & D and adoption of new energies that will reduce CO2 and save energy.
Research, development and sales of Bio-Fuel/
Mixed Gasoline analyzers.
Research and development of new energies
(wind power/solar power generation, fuel cells, bio-fuel).
Collaborative research of new energies.
Obtaining patents and licensing of new energy technologies.
Creating databases for new energies.
Publication of books and magazines on new energies.
Lectures/lecture tours on new energies.

For a Sustainable Society
with New Energy Development
Today, not a day passes by in which global warming, environmental issues and the energy problem are not mentioned in the news.
IPCC (United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) has estimated that in order to prevent the progress of global warming, a maximum of 5.5% of the worlds GDP (Approximately 300 trillion yen) would be required.
However, since measures to avert global warming conflict with economic growth, every country has a clash of interests and is unable to secure a realistic solution.
The day might come when a company may have to apply most of its profits to the prevention of global warming.
EU has adopted a policy to increase the use of renewable energies to 20%. The Scandinavian countries of Sweden and Finland have already succeeded in adopting the use of renewable energies to over 20%.
On the other hand, the percentage of renewable energies to the total power generation in Japan is a mere 1%.
Germany has overtaken Japan to become the number one solar power generating country in the world. As a result, its production of solar batteries has developed into a major industry, closing in on Japan with China.
The German model has shown that though the introduction of renewable energies might initially be uneconomical compared to existing energy sources and thus a hindrance to their wider use, the problem can be solved with the right policies.
NERI believes that before being compelled to invest a huge sum for the prevention of global warming, renewable energies should be strategically introduced and an industrial society that does not conflict with its economic growth should be created.
