Power Retail Business

Our power retail business helps improve plants’ added value.

Subsidiary Takuma Energy helps increase the profitability of plant operators’ businesses, reduce consumers’ greenhouse gas emissions, and reduce electricity rates by procuring and supplying power.

Local production and consumption of power

We are working to increase the added value of power plants and to revitalize regions by supplying power generated at local power plants to consumers in those regions.

Takuma Energy’s power source makeup and emission factor

Takuma Energy supplies primarily electric power (FIT power and recycled power) produced by energy from waste and biomass power plants delivered by TAKUMA in an effort to help realize a sustainable society.

Power source makeup

April 1, 2020, to March 31, 2021 plan

Power source makeup
Some of the expenses incurred by Takuma Energy in the course of procuring electricity are covered by dues collected from all consumers who use electricity, including non-TAKUMA customers. For the purpose of calculating CO2 emissions, this electricity is treated as having the nationwide average of CO2 emissions for electricty, which includes thermal power generation, etc..
Recycled electricity means resource circulating power that is generated by energy from waste plants that have been FIT-certified. Electricity produced at the same facility as FIT electricity (biomass)*1 is considered to be recycled electricity if it was generated using non-biomass waste fuel (plastic, etc.).
This electricity includes power from hydro, thermal, and nuclear sources as well as FIT electricity and renewable energy.
Electricity procured from other companies is included in the “Other” category. An example of power in this category would be “electricity supplied on an imbalance basis from general power transmission and distribution companies.”

CO2emission factor

(FY2018 result)

  • Post-procurement emission factor:0.449kg-CO2/kWh

  • Basic emission factor:0.004kg-CO2/kWh
