About us




NEDO is Japan’s one of the largest national research and development organization established in 1980. NEDO operates under the supervision of Japan’s METI (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industries) to address domestic energy issues and global environmental issues, and to enhance industrial technology.


■ Domestic Energy and Global Environmental Issues

As Japan’s leading research and development organization, we actively undertake research and development of new energy (e.g., photovoltaic, wind power, biomass and waste, geothermal power, thermal utilization, and fuel cells) and energy conservation technologies. Through these efforts, we promote greater utilization of new energy solutions and improved energy conservation. We also contribute to stable energy supply and resolution of global environmental problems by promoting the demonstration of new energy solutions, energy conservation, and environmental technologies abroad based on the knowledge obtained from domestic projects.


■ Industrial Technology Development

With the aim of raising the level of industrial technology, we pursue research, development and commercialization of advanced new technology. Drawing on its considerable management know-how gathered through collaboration among industries, government and academia, we carry out projects to explore early stage technology seeds as well as mid to late stage technology that could form or redirect the future competitive industrial foundation.
