Matsusaka Woody Biomass Power Plant

This biomass power plant effectively uses excess thinned wood from an area around Mie Prefecture as biomass fuel. The plant operates with a "local production for local consumption" model. Electricity generated by the plant is supplied to neighboring consumers through a power producer and supplier (PPS). Daigas began involvement in November of 2017 with a 14.5% investment ratio.
