Film “Renewable Japan – The search for a New Energy Paradigm” to be Shown at GRESS
The Lawyer and Director Hiroyuki Kawai presents how pioneering individuals, communities and companies are meeting their energy needs in Japan and around the world. Together with Tetsunari Iida, the director shows the quality and scale of the energy revolution that is underway in many parts of the world. Although the film presents the shift towards renewable energy primarily from a Japanese angle, it has a lot to tell about the political, economic, cultural and social dimensions of the energy revolution which is taking place around the globe.

Hiroyuki Kawai, Lawyer & Director: “I was truly surprised and impressed by what I found, by the quality and scale of the energy revolution that is underway. And much of this is little known in Japan where nuclear reactors are being re-booted and nuclear technology is being promoted and outsourced. But there is a movement here in Japan too, and a tangible sense of hope in many outlying areas. So, while the Japanese government is becoming increasingly isolated in their approach to energy, I believe that the revolution within and beyond our borders will win out in the end”

The film will be shown in the afternoon of the first GRESS day, on 7 November at 16:15 h. After the film, Tetsunari Iida, one of the filmmakers, will be available for a discussion with the audience to be moderated by Matthias von Hein, head of the Chinese programme at Deutsche Welle.

About GRESS: The Global Renewable Energy Solutions Showcase GRESS is an event by the Renewable Energy Community during the UN Climate Change Conference COP23 for the COP23 delegates in order to demonstrate how renewables can help to achieve the international climate goals.
