[JP] Energy consumption of the JR Maglev

Post by latestnews »

On May 27, JR Tokai President Shin Kaneko told a press conference that the power consumption of the Linear Central Shinkansen would be covered by the power supply of the electric power company. At a press conference held on May 27, JR Tokai President Shin Kaneko was proud to answer a reporter's question about the power consumption of the Linear Central Shinkansen Line.

According to JR, the peak power consumption of the Linear Line is
  • 270,000 kW when it opens between Tokyo and Shinagawa-Nagoya and
  • 740,000 kW when it opens between Tokyo and Osaka.
However, the 270,000 kW peak power consumption when the line opens in Nagoya was estimated in June 2014. The Environment Minister's opinion on the environmental impact assessment (assessment) compiled by JR in June 2014 was scathing: "Such an increase in energy demand cannot be overlooked under the circumstances where every possible policy measure is being taken to combat global warming."
