“We will reduce our dependence on nuclear as much as possible by accelerating the use of energy saving and renewable energy and promoting highly efficient thermal plants and other measures,” said Japan’s Liberal Democratic Party the day before Prime Minister Abe took office. How far has Japan come since the triple disasters of March 11, 2011 and how far will it go under the new regime? 

Please join us as our distinguished panel of experts will discuss how Japan can seize its opportunities and overcome its limitations to increase its renewable energy options.
