Message from the ChairmanEnergy conservation has been an important topic for achieving the fundamental proposition for creating an economic society to deal with thestatus of a country with limited energy supplies. Amid recent circumstances in which there has been a sharp rise in the price of crude oil sothat one barrel now exceeds US$140, the importance of energy conservation is increasing. Also as the issue of global warming is becomingurgent in recent years, the importance of energy conservation is ever-increasing as one pillar of the most effective measures. In 2008, as weapproach the first commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol, the G8 Hokkaido Toyako Summit was held in July. Led by the prime minister, allparticipants agreed to ask countries to adopt the long-term objective of halving greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 as a global objective. Thisadded momentum to discussions at the U.N. as the next framework following the Kyoto Protocol. The key to achieving this objective lies infurther development and diffusion of energy conservation technologies, and the expectations for and the role played by energy conservationtechnologies of Japan, which are at an advanced level in global terms, are further increasing both in Japan and abroad.While importance is being placed on energy conservation in this way, the Energy Conservation Center, Japan (ECCJ) will mark this Octoberthe thirtieth anniversary since its foundation. This autumn plan is to launch the Council regarding to business alliance support for energyefficiency and conservation, and there are high hopes that the ECCJ will take on the role of a secretariat.As the core organization for promoting energy conservation, the ECCJ has played a major role in promoting energy conservation in manyfields, while receiving a great support from many parties such as the related government ministries and member companies. This includesproviding accurate and easy-to-understand information, promoting the diffusion of energy conservation, giving instructions related todiagnoses and providing international cooperation with regards to energy conservation. As the national center for energy conservation, whileadding new knowledge to, adjusting, and otherwise handling data, know-how, and other information on energy conservation that we haveaccumulated over many years regarding energy conservation, we will continue to strive to transmit both within and outside Japan informationthat has quickly responded to the times and to further enrich the contents of our business.In trying to promote energy conservation, it is essential to have positive working relationships with many parties in a wide range of fields. Iwould like to ask for everyone’s cooperation and support.August 2008Nobuya MinamiChairman, The Energy Conservation Center, JapanHistory of Energy Conservation19471951196019721973197819791988199219951997199819992000200220032005200620072008Heat Management Regulations formulated to govern coal consumptionHeat Management Law enforcedJapan’s energy policy places emphasis on oil, shifting away from coalJapan Heat Energy Technology Association establishedUnited Nations Conference on the Human Environment [held in Stockholm]The first oil crisisThe Energy Conservation Center, Japan (ECCJ) establishedThe second oil crisisEnforcement of Law concerning the Rational Use of Energy (Energy Conservation Law)The first Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) congress [held in Geneva]UN Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED/Earth Summit) [held in Rio de Janeiro]The First Conference of Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP 1) [held in Berlin]International Energy Star Program implementedThe third Conference of Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP 3) [held in Kyoto]Kyoto Protocol adopted.
