Renewable Energy Institute hosted "REvision 2021: 10 Years from 3.11 - A New Energy Future" which was held as a webinar on Wednesday 10 March 2021.

This year's REvision focused on the frontlines of how the rapid expansion of renewables is creating dramatic changes in the existing systems in industry, transportation, energy and other sectors, as well as the prospects for realizing a decarbonized society through energy transformation.

Today having passed 10 years since the accident at TEPCO's Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, which could have destroyed all of eastern Japan, REvision2021 discussed energy strategies and technologies for a safe and secure decarbonized society that does not depend on nuclear power.
