Upper Hokaido, with favourable winds and abundant open land, is well suited to wind turbines, but there are fears that the associated fluctuations in power output will increasingly disrupt the balance of electrical demand and supply.

GS Yuasa ‘to boost EVs’ range with new Li-ion tech’

Japanese business journal Nikkei Asian Review said the batteries would allow a Mitsubishi Motors' i-MiEV small vehicle to travel up to 340km after charging – compared to around 170km at present. This would compare favourably with the driving range of a large EV or a petrol-fuelled vehicle, the journal claimed.
