Building an Optimal Portfolio of Power SourcesTokyo Gas recognizes that it is more important now than ever before to provide a stable source of electricity, taking into account major changes in the energy-related environment such as power and gas system reforms, and growth in our sales stock. The stable acquisition of power sources is therefore necessary, and we are establishing an optimal power source portfolio that combines our own power source with power purchased from other companies.
Securing Additional Power SourcesWe are promoting the construction of natural gas-fueled power stations and are committed to ensuring stable supply in the following ways. First, we will construct power stations close to areas of demand. Second, we will use highly efficient combined cycle power equipment to reduce environmental impact. And third, we will locate power stations near our LNG terminals to benefit synergies and enable efficient and stable management.
■Tokyo Gas Group’s Major Power Sources (as of June 2019)
Stable Power GenerationThe Group’s thermal power stations are fueled by natural gas produced at our LNG terminals. The stations maintain a stable supply of electricity through their operational and control activities as well as daily checks and periodic inspections. Capitalizing on expertise acquired in the gas service business, we will do our best to ensure safety and stable supply while addressing environmental concerns and also supply electricity at lower cost in our efforts to meet social demand and expectations as a total energy business company.
