Japan Reconsiders Its Nuclear Energy Options


Three years after the 2011 Fukushima nuclear catastrophe Japan has revealed that it still considers nuclear power as a vital source of commercial energy and will look to it for power in the future. In the country’s first energy policy since 2011, Japan’s government have said it is still a ‘key’ course of electricity for the country. The statement will likely cause a backlash from a Japanese public who still have memories of Fukushima fresh in their minds, and will be quick to remind Tokyo of the pledges that were made to reduce dependence on the power source amid cries to shut down the country’s reactors.
