Development of essential system for a low-carbon society, which is a countermeasure against global warming, has been required. The JRC conducted field trials for more efficient low-carbon society by using ICT in Hita City, Oita Prefecture, which uses solar power and wind power and biomass power. Using a wireless telecommunications system of the VHF band (digital dividend) of analog television, for the analysis of natural energy power generation and power consumption analysis, demonstrated that it can reduce emissions of CO2. This wireless telecommunications system contribute to standardization as a method using a broadband VHF band based on these results, further, are recognized in the international standardization organizations, and contributed to spreading globally.
