Japan’s Energy Policy After Fukushima

Japan’s Energy Policy After Fukushima

Thursday, January 24, 2013

Masakazu Toyoda, Michel Di Capua

In light of the Fukushima nuclear reactor incident, caused by the Great East Japan Earthquake, Japan's future energy policy has been reevaluated. The government decided to reduce dependence on nuclear energy and to increase reliance on renewable energy, but to what extent and according to what timeframe is still unclear. Furthermore, an Independent Safety Regulatory Committee has been established, and reformation of the electricity market is under consideration. In addition, the role of natural gas, including shale gas, and oil remain important issues at hand. Masakazu Toyoda, Chairman & CEO of The Institute of Energy Economics, Japan and former Vice-Minister for International Affairs at METI, speaks about Japan's energy policy with an emphasis on Japan's energy mix for the future.
