Japan’s largest solar asset manager transforms solar asset productivity
ORIX Renewable Energy Management Corporation (OREM) is the subsidiary of ORIX Corporation (ORIX), a diversified financial services group headquartered in Japan. OREM runs the operation, management, and maintenance of power plants that use renewable energies such as solar power.
With 1 GW of solar energy assets, including utility-scale, commercial and industrial, ORIX is the largest solar asset manager in Japan. It also develops and operates its own rapidly growing fleet of solar farms that currently generate 702 MWp in utility, including Niigata Yotsugoya Power Plant (55.6 MWp), Shiriuchi Mega Solar 20M Power Plant (24 MWp), and Hirono-Cho Mega Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Plant (24.3 MWp). ORIX’s OR Yamaguchi Mine Solar Power Plant (56.4 MWp) is scheduled to commence operations in October 2021.
To contribute to Japan’s national goal of increasing its renewables mix to 24% by 2030, OREM wanted to implement innovative technology that can further increase the productivity of its solar assets.
