Clean energy developer Vena Energy, formerly Equis Energy, has commissioned a 41MW solar project in Yaita City, Tochigi Prefecture, Japan.

The Yaita project will generate approximately 47,150MWh per year, providing electricity to the equivalent of 8,938 households.

In Japan, Vena Energy owns 66 projects comprising 2.34GW in operation, under construction and in development.

Nitin Apte, CEO of Vena Energy said: “We are Asia‐Pacific’s largest renewable energy IPP because we have made a strong commitment to building expert local management teams that are committed to working closely with local communities. We are proud of our track record in support of Japan’s development of a sustainable, clean energy supply that that provides employment opportunities and contributes to economic growth.”

Following its acquisition in January 2018 by Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP), Equis Energy changed its name to Vena Energy earlier this month.
