AOMORI, Japan — The sun and the wind are the two natural phenomena most often harnessed for renewable energy, but one city in northern Japan believes it can tap an overlooked resource that it has in abundance: snow.

A proving test in the city of Aomori will begin next month and run through March. The city will conduct the test in cooperation with Forte, a local information technology startup, along with Tokyo’s University of Electro-Communications.
