Challenges of TEPCO

  1. Energy & Resources

Coal provides fuel supply stability and economic competitiveness. TEPCO imports coal primarily from Australia, China, and Indonesia. In order to achieve economic competitiveness and supply stability, TEPCO plans to use as many brands of coal as possible and diversify supply sources.

TEPCO utilizes desulfurizers, denitrizers, and electric precipitators for clean and environmentally friendly use of coal. TEPCO also participates in the IGCC (Integrated Coal Gasification Combined Cycle) R&D joint venture with the Japanese government and industries.

In addition to the coal for our two units, TEPCO also procures half of coal consumed by Soma Kyodo Power Company’s Shinchi Power Station.
