i-Energy WG has achieved significant progress since its inauguration in May last year; the number of registered members has increased
three-fold in the past year, international collaborations have been established, and Kansai Science City was selected
as one of four “Next-Generation Energy and Social Systems Demonstration Areas” by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry
