“Community-based Renewable Energy Structures: A Case of Small Hydropower in a Japanese Rural Community”
Date and time: Thursday 2021-12-09, 12:30~14:00 (CET, UTC/GMT +1h)
The Zoom Meeting will be open from 12:15 (CET).
In this virtual lecture, Junko Fukumoto (Fukuoka Prefectural University) will use an ethnographic case-study to disclose, how the preservation of small hydropower plants hinges on the traditional ways in rural communities throughout Japan. In order to find a realistic way to expand the usage of renewable energy in Japan it is essential to first understand the current state of rural communities. While considering the aspects mentioned above, she will introduce the structures and equality of rice cultivation in rural hamlets in Japan.
