PRESS RELEASE: 07 November 2016

Japan: Nippon Renewable Energy and Schneider Electric’s Technology Partnership and Commissioning of a 36MW Solar Power Plant

Pegasus Legal would like to congratulate Nippon Renewable Energy K.K. (“NRE”) and Schneider Electric Japan (“Schneider”) on setting up a comprehensive technology partnership.

NRE and Schneider have worked together to establish a technology framework to deploy Schneider’s proprietary PV-BOX systems on 17 future solar project sites. Schneider will also provide electrical operation and maintenance services across NRE’s existing 510MW solar portfolio throughout Japan.

The NRE team was led by Adam Ballin, Makoto Ueno and Juan Mas Valor and advised by Pegasus Legal. 

The technology partnership was announced on the commissioning of NRE's latest solar power plant, Mito Solar, its largest to date at 36MW. Each year, the plant saves 25,326 tons of CO2 and 43.3 million litres of water, and provides 8,713 households with electricity.
