Energy Security after Fukushima

< Venue > GLOBIS University, Tokyo Campus

< Session description >
Japan has not yet adopted a new national energy policy after the 3/11 disaster that caused the Fukushima nuclear accidents. While there is no “easy fix” to the question of sustainable energy supply, what should constitute short and long-term strategies for a resource-poor country? How can Japan achieve its energy security in the face of changing global supply demand balance? A former foreign minister and a former executive director of the IEA are among the panelists to discuss these topics.
