Tokyo 2020 Games aim to use 100% Renewable Energy

Updated: Aug 13, 2021


The Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games announced that the Tokyo 2020 Games will procure 100% of the energy required for the operation of the Games from renewable sources, including electricity generated in Fukushima Prefecture, with the support of Tokyo 2020 Gold Partner ENEOS. As the major energy supplier for Tokyo 2020, ENEOS has committed to supplying electricity generated only from renewable sources to competition venues and Games-related facilities during Games operations.


The electricity supplied by ENEOS will be generated by means of wood biomass power using construction waste and tree clippings from within Japan and through solar power generation facilities in Fukushima Prefecture.


Fukushima Prefecture has focused on renewable energy supply as a key element of its reconstruction and recovery strategy following the Great East Japan Earthquake, and Tokyo 2020 will support these efforts by making use of renewable electricity procured from the affected areas. As a part of this initiative, it is expected that during the Games all facilities in Ariake Urban Sports Park, which hosts BMX and skateboarding events, will be powered completely by renewable electricity produced in Fukushima Prefecture.


Electricity provided by suppliers other than ENEOS has been accompanied by green certificates or other environmental credits under Tokyo 2020's commitment to the ambitious goal of 100% renewable energy during the Games.
