About JR East Energy Development
East Japan Railway Company (JR East) established "JR East Energy Development Corporation" in April 2015 to promote the introduction of renewable energy.

We will continue to develop wind power generation projects that are rooted in the local community.
By supplying the developed renewable energy mainly to railroads, JR East Energy Development will contribute to achieving JR East's goal of using renewable energy to cover approximately 30-40% of its entire energy consumption in order to achieve virtually zero CO2 emissions in the railroad business by 2050.
