Overseas projects

Based on the technology and know-how that we have accumulated in Japan and abroad, we are developing our overseas electricity business centered on IPP projects, mainly in Asia where market growth is high, and also in North America and Europe.
Our goal is to increase our equity ownership in overseas electricity output from our current 1,975 MW (2018) to 2,400 MW in 2021 and then to 5,000 MW in 2030.

Along with IPP projects, we are also actively providing consulting services in overseas markets, which forms an important pillar of our overseas electricity business.

Note: In April 2017, we made an organizational change regarding the management of our overseas projects. International Business Office of Kyushu Electric Power Company engages in overseas strategies and networking, whereas Kyuden International Corporationopens in a new window focuses on overseas IPP investment activities and consulting services.
