TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan's government will propose ramping up a scheme to encourage electricity generation from renewable sources, aiming to cut annual CO2 emissions by 2 percent in 2020.

The growing trend for renewable energy is hitting the amount of electricity power companies supply through regular grid networks, but Tokyo has pledged to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 25 percent from 1990 levels by 2020 and to enhance its national energy security.
