Notice of Council on Geothermal Utilization (Public)


Following the start of the geothermal resource development survey in the Niseko Mountains, Niseko Town and Rankoshi-cho have set up a council consisting of hot spring operators, environmental, energy and tourism-related organizations, and experts, and have been studying geothermal since last fiscal year. We are working on meetings and case studies.
At the 1st Council held in May, we received explanations on the situation of tree cutting cases, etc. and the recovery plan that occurred during the survey carried out by the business operator (Japan Heavy Industries Ltd., Mitsui Oil Exploration Co., Ltd.).
Based on the opinions from the participants and others from the council, we have been discussing about related organizations and organizations with regard to restoration methods, etc. However, the result is now settled and we will revisit the council (2 nd) We decided to hold.
On the day, I hope to give everyone the opportunity to think about geothermal resources in the region through the survey process and explanation of the recovery plan.
You can participate regardless of the local government you live in, and you do not need to sign up.
We appreciate your participation by many people.
Date: January 18 (Fri) Heisei 13: 30 ~ (about 1.5 hours)
