Renova unit’s biomass plant supplies power to NTT Docomo

The plant began selling on long-term fixed-price contracts with power retailers in 2023.

The 20.5-megawatt Akita Biomass Power Plant has begun supplying electricity in the Tokhoku Region through NTT Anode Energy Corporation, with the generated power to be used at some NTT Docomo facilities.

In a statement, Renova said the power plant is owned by its subsidiary United Renewable Energy Co.

Some of the NTT Docomo’s facilities in the Tohoku region that will use the power supply from the biomass power plant include the NTT Docomo Akita Building, marking the first time the company used electricity from biomass.
