Wind power plants operated by Eurus Energy in Hokkaido, Japan. The government aims to double the share of renewable power in Japan's energy mix to 36% to 38% by March 2030.

TOKYO -- Japanese trading house Toyota Tsusho plans to build a giant wind power plant in Hokkaido next year as part of an ambitious goal to bring renewable energy to Tokyo from the northernmost of Japan's main islands, Nikkei has learned.

The new plant will have a capacity of 540 megawatts, half that of a conventional nuclear power plant, and will double Hokkaido's wind-power capacity.
