The Japanese energy company JERA aims to bring the world’s leading energy solutions, including new energy supply models, to Japan, to help solve the country’s energy issues. Specifically, JERA is creating a clean energy economy for Japan through the use of renewable energy and LNG thermal power generation.
In April 2019, JERA and EDF Trading Limited formed LNG trading joint venture JERA Global Markets (JERAGM). JERAGM procures North American natural gas and transports it via pipeline to Freeport, Texas, where it is liquified then shipped to and sold globally.
By tapping EDF’s market access and energy trading acumen, JERA optimizes their LNG assets, bringing them closer to achieving their goal of providing clean, affordable power to the citizens of Japan.
