The ideal form of energy system, particularly electric power systems that support data-driven society in Society 5.0 will be studied. The “Vision Goals”(proposals) of electric power systems which support Society 5.0 will be shared at the same time as efforts will be made to resolve technology challenges, policy, and system challenges which have been identified.
