Tepco, the operator of the Fukushima power plant, plans to move away from nuclear power and into renewable energy, including floating offshore wind. According to Nikkei Asian Review, Tepco will pursue renewable energy projects worth tens of billions of dollars in a sharp turn away from nuclear power, an effort that will require it to find partners abroad. The company first announced a plan to diversify its generating capacity earlier this year, but it was not immediately clear what form that might take. The company’s president told Nikkei that Tepco aims to develop renewable energy installations in Japan and overseas that produce 6 GW to 7 GW of power.
