Challenges of TEPCO

  1. Energy & Resources

Thermal Power Generation at TEPCO is flexible to seasonal and hourly fluctuations in electricity demand and it accounts for approximately 50% of TEPCO's total energy output. TEPCO began using LNG as a source of energy that does not emit smoke dust, or SOx, for electricity at its Minami-Yokohama Thermal Power Station in 1969. This was the first time that LNG had ever been used for this purpose in the world. TEPCO is dealing actively with environmental issues around the Tokyo Metropolitan area and also uses the Advanced Combined Cycle power generation system to make use of natural resources more efficiently.
