Mr. Masakazu Toyoda, Chairman & CEO of the Institute of Energy Economics, Japan


Four months have passed since the Great East Japan Earthquake and the ensuing accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. Summer this year in Japan is hotter than usual, because the country has set a goal to reduce the maximum electricity consumption by 15% from the previous year, and there is also a nation-wide heated discussion over energy supply-demand and policy.


What countermeasures can be taken to secure a stable power supply, which is important for the Japanese economic recovery including the restoration of the disaster-stricken areas? Including the promotion of renewable energy use, what directions can be considered for future Japanese energy policy? 


FPCJ will invite Mr. Masakazu Toyoda, Chairman & CEO of the Institute of Energy Economics, Japan, to talk about short-, medium- and long-term energy-related challenges brought about by the Great East Japan Earthquake. The institute has been making analyses and proposals about Japanese policies related to energy and the environment since its establishment in 1966. 


Time & Date: July 27 (Wed), 15:00-16:30


Place: Foreign Press Center/Japan (6th floor, Nippon Press Center Bldg.)


Language: Japanese (with English interpretation)


FPCJ supporting members and embassy representatives may also attend the briefing as observers (admission free).
