    August 17, 2022 - SeeNews Renewables


      August 17 (Renewables Now) - Japan’s Electric Power Development Co (TYO:9513), operating as J-Power, has signed an agreement with US Juneau Hydropower Inc to co-develop a 19.8-MW hydropower plant (HPP) in Alaska.

      The agreed scheme is named the Sweetheart Lake Hydroelectric Development Project (SLHP) and is located near Alaska's capital of Juneau, J-Power announced today.

      In addition to the construction of the hydro plant, the companies will also cooperate on the transmission lines and a district heating system in Alaska’s state capital.

      Aside from the Sweetheart Lake project, the Japanese company is currently working on two solar parks in the US -- the 400-MW Refugio and the 50-MW Birchwood.

      Overall, J-Power owns 786 MW in a 3,111 MW portfolio of operational renewable energy capacity in Australia, China, the Philippines, Thailand and the UK. In May, the company signed an agreement with Australian renewable energy firm Genex Power Ltd (ASX:GNX) to co-develop up to 200-MW of wind power in Queensland.
