Abstract

Possibility of substitution of renewable energy (RE) such as solar, biomass, hydraulic power, ocean, wind and geothermy is investigated to preserve the global environment and solve the energy source depletion problem. RE availability in Japan is 24{times}10{sup 14}kcal?y including 61{times}10{sup 10}kWh?y of electric power and 10{times}10{sup 14}kcal?y of heat quantity (electric power is multiplied by 2.7 for conversion to calorie, with thermal power generation efficiency as 37%). For the time being, the target for 2030 is 9{times}10{sup 14}kcal?y in total which is equivalent to petroleum substitution of 97 million kl and CO{sub 2} reduction of 270 million tons. When fossil fuels are subsituted for RE, costs of CO{sub 2} recovery?fixation calculated from CO{sub 2} discharge amount, carbon tax to be paid, environmental damage are added to the fossil fuel cost as a social cost. With this, a wide use of RE is evaluated as a merit. As for the target for 2030 set for the present, cost of CO{sub 2} fixation, carbon tax and environmental damage are annually 1.8 trillion yen, 0.72 - 6.7 trillion yen and 3.9 - 6.7 trillion yen, respectively. 7 figs., 19 tabs.
