TOKYO CHALLENGE 100 with Tohoku Electric Power Co., Inc.

Contribute to the realization of a smart society in a new era and grow with the sustainable development of society

About Tohoku Electric Power Co., Inc.

In addition to intensifying competition through the liberalization of electricity retailing and the division of transmission and distribution, the business environment surrounding the Company is at a major turning point, with the expansion of the introduction of renewable energy and changes in the power supply and demand structure due to digitalization. In addition, in the six prefectures of Tohoku and Niigata Prefectures where we have a business base, the population decline and the declining birthrate and aging population are accelerating compared to other regions, and social issues such as transportation, education, welfare, etc. are expected to become apparent in the future, and the social structure is about to change significantly. We believe that this is our second founding period, and we will combine the strengths of "power professionals" and "bonds with local governments" that we have built up over 70 years with the "advanced digital technology" and "innovative business models" that startups have, leading to a transformation of our business model.
