Five Recommendations

  • 1. Japan should decide on “zero nuclear power,” avoid the accumulation of a ‘negative legacy,’ and accelerate investments in safer energy sources
  • 2. Expanding renewables will lead to 19 trillion yen in investments -- both businesses and local economies will benefit
  • 3. Energy savings, efficiency, high-efficient gas-fired generation and expanding renewables are the only ways to reduce present and future fuel costs
  • 4. From “nuclear power + coal” to “renewables + natural gas,” resulting in increased self-sufficiency and reduced carbon-dioxide emissions
  • 5. A shift to distributed power systems will create a demand-side driven energy autonomous society
