In the ZEH support project of the Agency for Natural Resources and Energy of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, support for multiple ZEHs will be started with the "community-based ZEH resilience enhancement project" with the supplementary budget for FY2019.
Of the supplementary budget for this fiscal year, 2 billion yen has been booked, including the "ZEH + R Support Project." In the ZEH resilience enhancement project by the community, if more than 80% of the residential community of three or more units is ZEH + (or ZEH + R), it is 1.05 million yen (or 1.15 million yen) per unit, and the storage battery is 3 per kilowatt We assist 10,000 yen (up to 300,000 yen).
The requirement is to propose a mechanism to widely provide the local residents with surplus solar power generated by houses participating in the community in the event of a power outage. Given the intensification and frequent occurrence of disasters, not only users of ZEH itself will enjoy the benefits, but also contribute to local responses in the event of a power outage, so allocate more budget. Another aim is to reduce the dependence on grid power.
