Japan Eases Rules for Geothermal-Power Plants at National Parks

Japan has revised rules for geothermal power projects in national parks, where more than 80 percent of the nation’s resources lie, as it seeks to increase the amount of energy that originates from cleaner sources.

The Ministry of Environment has expanded areas where developers may conduct surveys and build geothermal power plants in national parks, it said in a statement today.
