Summit Energy’s 50MW Biomass Power Plant at Sakata City, Yamagata Prefecture
16 May 2019, Thursday (09:00 - 20:00 hrs.)
was constructed in the Sakata Rinkai Industrial Park facing Sakata North Port. It will be operated by Summit Sakata Power Corporation. The 50 MW biomass power plant will be the largest of its kind in Yamagata Prefecture and also one of the largest of its kind in the Tohoku region. Biomass fuels, such as Japanese wood chips and imported wood pellets, will be procured through Sumitomo Corporation. The Japanese wood chips will comprise unused wood materials and timber off-cuts mainly generated in Yamagata Prefecture and will cover about 40% of the biomass fuel, while wood pellets imported from across the world will also be used as fuel. Electricity generated at the plant will be sold to power consumers through Summit Energy.

Most of the biomass power producers in Japan are selling their output via the government's feed-in tariff (FiT) program. It requires utilities to buy renewable energy at a fixed price. At the moment, large biomass plants, that use wood or agricultural waste feedstock, can sell at a fixed rate of 21 yen per kilowatt-hour. However, the program isn't cost competitive compared to coal energy.
eRex, Japan's power supplier, is planning to build the largest biomass power plant to date in Japan with the aim that the scale of the facility will provide healthy margins and allow to skip FiT program altogether.
Right now, eRex is conducting feasibility study, with the expected plant planned sometime in 2024 or 2025 in eastern Japan. To be built at a cost of approximately 90 billion yen ($812 million), the plant will have a capacity of 300 MW.
eRex plans to reap economies of scale in operation and fuel procurement at the proposed plant and aims to make it as economical as coal energy, which costs around 12 yen per kilowatt-hour.
