Our Power Plants

Japan sits on a rich and renewable resource: hot water. We build power plants that harness the energy in hot water and convert it into electricity. 

From north to South

Some of our plants are built around new wells, others will use existing wells where the water is not hot enough for traditional geothermal power plants, and still others take advantage of unused low-temperature heat in what’s called the “bottoming cycle” of a traditional geothermal power plant.

Kitsune Power Plant, Okuhida, Gifu

The hot spring binary power plant (output: 50 kilowatts) started operation in June 2020 in Okuhida Hot Spring Village. After using the hot water pumped up from the hot spring well to generate electricity, we supply it to the hot spring facility at a temperature suitable for bathing, which realizes the multiple use of energy. In addition, by combining power generation and bathing, hot water can be supplied to hot spring facilities with stability. The generated electricity is sold using FIT (feed-in-tariff).

 Shika Power Plant, Oguni, Kumamoto

The binary power plant (150 kilowatts) started operation in April 2020 as attached to the Waita geothermal power plant (output: 2 megawatts, flash system) operated by Furusato Netsuden in Oguni-cho, Aso-gun, Kumamoto Prefecture. This is our first geothermal power plant, and we use it to generate electricity using secondary water before returning it to the ground (bottoming cycle power generation). We realize the efficiency of power generation by reusing it.
