Japan’s current installed solar capacity has reached almost 5 GW, making it the third largest nation in terms of solar power, behind only Germany and Italy but by a large margin. Japan was, in the late 90s and early 2000s, the world leader in solar power but the withdrawal of certain effective policies and shifting focus on nuclear power decreased its solar growth considerably. It has revamped its solar power development and added more than 1 GW of solar installed capacity in 2011, the largest in a single year. Majority of this is grid connected and distributed through the utility companies.

Japan is also the world leader in manufacturing solar cells, modules and other equipment required for solar power generation. This expertise and credibility certainly augments the country's efforts to become solar dependent and, thus, less reliant on fossil fuel exports or nuclear power.
