The Japan Electrical Manufacturers' Association (JEMA) appears to be actively and negatively lobbying on several strands of climate change and energy policy. JEMA seems to be moderately supportive of 2030 emissions targets, however has stated the 2050 emission reduction should be considered an ambitious vision and not a binding target. In 2016, JEMA have called for the revision of the carbon tax and supported its repeal. In the same year JEMA proposed a plan where it opposes emissions trading. JEMA called for a general overhaul of the feed-in tariff scheme for renewables in 2016 and again in 2018, maintaining that the burden to the public should be reduced in a revised FIT scheme. Despite this, JEMA has advocated for policymakers to introduce more ambitious energy efficiency standards to reduce energy demand and CO2 emission. JEMA appears to support a sustained role for coal in the energy mix by stressing that it can be a reliable source of energy and help ensure Japanese energy security. This was reiterated in its response to Japan’s energy mix strategy published in 2018, where it appears to support the current mix of energy sources while emphasizing the challenges of renewable energy including meeting the base load demand. They also stated that nuclear energy should play a vital role in the energy mix.
