Minako Wakabayashi Partner Renewable Energy, Infrastructure

Tokyo

Minako plays a vital role in the rise of Japan’s renewable energy market.

Minako has significant experience advising international and domestic sponsors and developers on complex and innovative projects. She was called upon by the Japanese government in structuring the renewable Feed-in-Tariff scheme in Japan and prepared the government’s model contracts for specific contracts (power purchase contract/interconnection contract), which are a key component of the Feed-in-Tariff scheme in Japan.

Backed by her experience in her prior career as a public prosecutor in Japan, she also serves as a member of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Supervising Committee for Public Bidding (Tokyo-to Nyusatsu Kanshi Iinkai) which advocates public rights to the fairness and adequacy of the public bidding procedures of the government. Minako practiced at Orrick's New York office in 2004-2005.
