Japan May Pull More Approvals for Solar Projects Behind Schedule

Japan’s government is investigating whether solar power projects approved in fiscal 2013 are moving ahead as planned, signaling some of them may be canceled.

In a previous investigation of projects approved in fiscal 2012, at least 165 were canceled or abandoned with some of them failing to secure land and equipment, Nobuhiro Watanabe, an official in charge of promoting clean energy at the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, said today.
