Marubeni Corporation has launched “SOLACLE”, a trading platform for domestic solar power plants based on the feed-in tariff system.
SOLACLE is a platform that enables investors and companies to directly purchase solar power plants owned by Marubeni and, if they have their own solar power plants, to sell directly to Marubeni. By directly purchasing, operating, and selling solar power plants through SOLACLE, Marubeni will resolve the problems presented by the secondary distribution market for solar power plants, such as equipment defects and credit concerns in transactions, and further promote the spread of solar power plants as social infrastructure.
Since the introduction of the FIT system in July 2012, the cumulative installed capacity of solar power plants has expanded to approximately 64 GW as of the end of September 2021. Furthermore, in the Sixth Strategic Energy Plan, the Japanese government has set an ambitious target of approximately 104 to 118 GW of cumulative installed capacity by 2030, which is expected to expand the trading market for solar power plants.
Through SOLACLE, Marubeni will contribute to the sustainable growth and development of the environment and society by ensuring safe and secure transactions of solar power plants, increasing liquidity, and further expanding renewable energy.
