Established in 2015, JERA is an equal joint venture of two major Japanese electric companies, TEPCO Fuel & Power Incorporated and Chubu Electric Power Company. JERA is an energy company with global reach that has strength in the entire energy supply chain, from participation in LNG and other fuel resource projects and fuel procurement, through fuel transportation to power generation.
JERA’s mission is to provide cutting edge solutions to the world’s energy issues, by offering energy supply models established in Japan through JERA’s global operations to other countries.
Toward 2025, JERA’s energy solutions focus mainly on two businesses: the LNG value chain business and the large-scale renewable energy business centred on offshore wind power generation. These businesses are complementary; renewable energy with variable power generation output is complemented by flexible, clean LNG thermal power generation. With demand expected to grow globally, particularly in Asia, JERA aims to become a leader in these two businesses.
EnBW Energie Baden-Württemberg AG (EnBW AG) is one of the largest energy supply companies in Germany and Europe. EnBW Group operates the entire value chain, from generation and trading, to renewable energies, grid operations and sales. EnBW is looking back at a history of over a century, a publicly owned company, with a workforce of over 22,000 employees.
In 2013, EnBW embarked on a radical reorganization, in response to the fundamental changes brought about by the German Energiewende. EnBW realigned the company under the motto: “Energy Transition. Safe. Hands on.” Against the background of the phasing out of nuclear power and increasing decarbonization, EnBW is expanding renewable energies - primarily wind and hydropower - to make them one of the main pillars of EnBW’s business. The first step in Offshore Wind was Baltic 1 in 2010, Germany’s first commercial sized Offshore Wind Farm. Before the end of 2019, EnBW team also brought online two large Offshore Wind Farms in Germany, Hohe See and Albatros, the largest Offshore Wind Farm project to date with a joint capacity of 610MW.
In addition to its core market of Germany, EnBW is actively seeking opportunities to selectively add projects in currently developing and emerging growth markets around the world with ambitious expansion targets. EnBW has developed business units not only in Germany, but also in Northern Europe, France, Turkey, USA and Asia Pacific. In Asia Pacific, EnBW has its regional headquarter in Taipei and is a stakeholder in Formosa III project.
