JEPIC has been undertaking the implementation of the following technical cooperation that is one of JICA's programs under official development assistance.

1) JICA Knowledge Co-Creation (KCC) Program

JEPIC conducts two courses of KCC Program (Group & Region Focus and Country Focus) for participants from developing countries aiming at transfer of technologies in the electric power field, under the contracts with JICA.

Group & Region Focus course is for participants from several countries of the world. JICA prepares subject and program independently for KCC Program.

Country Focus course is for specific countries. The subject and program of the KCC Program is created cooperatively between JICA and a country who wishes to take the KCC Program.

In FY2022, the following KCC programs were implemented;

<< Group & Region Focus course >>
a. Power Distribution Grid A
b. Power Distribution Grid B
c. Stabilizing Power Systems to Introduce Various Kinds of Renewable Energy(A)
d. Stabilizing Power Systems to Introduce Various Kinds of Renewable Energy(B)
e. Power Grid Planning and Operation(A)
f. Power Grid Planning and Operation(B)
g. g. Effective operation of thermal power generation
h. Promotion of Hydropower Development

In fiscal 2022, we accepted 77 trainees for 8 assignment-specific training courses.

The number of trainees accepted by country from 1958 to the end of 2022, when the Overseas Electricity Research Council was established, is 3,552 as shown in the table below.
