Machi Mirai Seisakusho promotes decarbonization in Hokkaido with the ecosystem “e.CYCLE”
― Launching a field design team based in Hokkaido ―

Machi Mirai Seisakusho Co., Ltd. (Representative Director: Hideaki Aoyama, hereinafter referred to as our company) has started a field design team at our Hokkaido branch in SAPPORO Incubation Hub DRIVE (*1). In Hokkaido, which has one of the largest renewable energy potentials in Japan, we are developing an ecosystem “e.CYCLE” (*2) that realizes regional revitalization through local production and consumption of renewable energy and inter-regional accommodation. We will promote decarbonization.

Blessed with vast land and rich nature, Hokkaido is an area with extremely high potential for renewable energy. Above all, wind power generation, small- and medium-sized hydroelectric power generation, and solar power generation are said to have the highest introduction potential in Japan (*3). In addition, 82 municipalities in Hokkaido have announced net zero carbon dioxide emissions by 2050, and are actively working on carbon neutrality (*4).
Based on these circumstances, in order to further promote
decarbonization in Hokkaido, we decided to develop “e.CYCLE” based in Hokkaido and opened a Hokkaido branch. On January 11, 2023, a start-up ceremony was held at the base SAPPORO Incubation Hub DRIVE.
About the field design team
In order to promote decarbonization through e.CYCLE in Hokkaido, the field design team conducts field-based activities such as renewable energy potential research, development of renewable energy demand, consumer research and interviews. Based on the knowledge gained there, we will apply e.CYCLE regional revitalization projects to local businesses in the future, and coordinate decarbonization through e.CYCLE in each region of Hokkaido.
Currently, the Hokkaido branch is mainly made up of university students and graduate students in Hokkaido, and we plan to actively recruit student interns. Graduates of Hokkaido University, including our representative, are enrolled in our company, and a professor emeritus of Hokkaido University is an advisor, providing an
environment where you can feel the cutting edge of the renewable energy industry that changes daily We will contribute to the development of human resources for the environment and energy of the next generation.
*1: SAPPORO Incubation Hub DRIVE
Hokkaido’s largest incubation facility with coworking spaces, shared offices, and event spaces, located 3 minutes on foot from Odori Station in the center of Sapporo. Based on the concept of “Working in Hokkaido more freely and more deeply”, we will not only provide comfortable workplace functions, but also promote exchanges of various human resources such as startups, freelancers, corporations and local governments to create new value. It has become a “base” for

*2: e.CYCLE (good cycle)
This is an aggregation service developed by our company that realizes regional revitalization through local production for local consumption of renewable energy and intercity distribution. Renewable energy power from renewable energy power plants is entrusted to us, and part of the electricity bills paid by consumers is returned to local governments where power plants are located as funds for regional revitalization. This is the first model in Japan that contributes to solving local issues and coexisting with renewable energy.
