The JGC Group believes that comprehensive energy management solutions, such as the integration of energy storage systems and existing facilities, as well as the introduction of virtual power plant (VPP) solutions, are essential to increase the capacity of renewable energy. We are now taking the following approaches with a focus on Southeast Asia and island countries.
