We push forward approach for practical use of the ocean renewable energy while promoting the accelerative spread of renewable energy in Saga, and utilizing five strengths that Saga has as the part.
Of such inside, MODEC Inc. "was the first in the world", and it was officially decided that proof business of floating form tide, wind power hybrid generation [skwíd] (sukuuiddo) was carried out in Saga sea area.
It wants to be place where Saga realizes this as energy that Japan in the future leads marine renewable energy for the world.
1 proof sea area (place where [skwíd] floats)
We think that Kabeshima, Yobuko-cho northwest sea area is convincing.
We are the most influential from aspects such as natural condition or bottom of the sea geological features such as fukyo, flow here.
"First installed electrical generator 2 the world" is characteristic of floating form tide, wind power hybrid generation [skwíd]
It is electrical generator turning sea breeze and passage of opportunity into electricity at the same time.
※Origin of [skwíd]
We take out of English name of cuttlefish. It is named with wish to flap for cuttlefish of whistle which is local brand in the world.
Past main step (birth of "Saga method") of 3 Saga
(1) Because we grasped movement about marine renewable energy of country, we started fishing ream, local fishermen's cooperative association, discussion, adjustment with local Maritime Safety Agency from 2011 and had you recommend sea area from fisherman.
(2) In 2012, we installed the ocean renewable energy meeting that fisherman representative became chairperson and started effective development of countermeasures "Saga plan" for proof field invitation of country and carried out fukyo, wave height, walrus condition Surveys of flow at the same time in the Sea of Genkai.
What we worked on with fisherman came to be always called "Saga method" in this way.
※Characteristic of Saga method
We chose sea area that became proof Field on recommendation from local fisherman. Chairperson of meeting is "fisherman representative".
Five strengths of 4 Saga
(1) With "university"
Sole university is in Saga in the whole country with the name called ocean energy and is called Saga University ocean energy research center (IOES).
(2) With "company"
Leading figure of proof study includes the shipbuilding industry which we can expect very much.
(3) With "energy"
Saga began with the postwar coal mining industry and diffusion rate of sunlight for house became best among the whole country today and always came facing energy.
(4) With "nature"
The Sea of Genkai facing the Sea of Japan has high potential of natural energy.
(5) With "area"
This was the best characteristic of Saga and worked with local fisherman who knew the sea well from start of this approach most.
