This paper examines the possibility of establishing a trilateral cooperation scheme between U.S., Japan and China, based on a global energy vision against climate change. Through global energy model projection and data analysis, a mutually dependent and mutually complementary relationship has been confirmed between the three countries. Trilateral cooperation will not only contribute to overcoming the current environment danger but also contribute to energy security and maintaining industrial competitiveness and make international contributions. Cooperation schemes should be established that go beyond the limits of existing bilateral cooperation with regard to strategy, implementation and deployment. Based on intergovernmental agreements, infrastructure for the full process flow of technology development, demonstration, industrialization and deployment should be built as the base for cooperation.
