NEDO to collaborate on US renewables scheme
A Japanese agency is among the collaborators working on a renewable energy project in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Officials from Japan's New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) signed a memorandum of understanding for the four-year project on Friday (March 5th).
The scheme will see a new solar photovoltaic system and micro-grid set up in Los Alamos, while the city of Albuquerque will benefit from the construction of a smart commercial building, the Associated Press reported.
A number of Japanese companies - including Hitachi, Toshiba and Kyocera - have also signed on to assist with the project.
Headquartered in Kawasaki, Japan, NEDO has overseas offices in a number of foreign cities, including Washington DC, Jakarta, Bangkok, Beijing, New Delhi and Paris.
The organisation's mission is to address global problems pertaining to the environment and energy, as well as to enhance industrial competition in Japan.
