         Energy for the 21st Century:
         New Alternatives for Growth,
           Harmony, and Balance

     Challenges to reshape the Energy Policy                                 2

   Fast economic growth, particularly in Asia, is creating increased
   competition for natural resources. This will in turn increase the need
   for resource efficiency, and value chain management.
   Fast growing countries will require investments in infrastructure to
   provide fundamental energy services, while they are also to meet
   financial constraints.   In order to level the required investment,
   Demand-side Management and end-use energy efficiency are shed light
   on as an important policy option.
   Concerns for impact on environment, water, etc. direct the policy focus
   on energy efficiency and conservation.

Nuclear, Clean coal, Renewables and End-use energy efficiency technologies play
the key roles to curb CO2 emissions in the power sector. Especially, Nuclear and
Clean coal technologies are essential as base load generation.

 Renewables Portfolio Standard (RPS):
  In Japan, RPS system was established in 2003. It requires each electric
  power company to generate or purchase a designated volume of “new
  energy” (mostly renewable) power or its equivalent. By RPS, the
  introduction of new energy will achieve 16 TWh in FY2014.

 Mega Solar:
  By 2020, the 10 regional electric power
  companies of Japan will have built mega solar
  power plants with a total capacity of about
  140 MW in about 30 sites throughout the
  country. Constructing 140 MW of mega solar
  power plants will enable the generation of
  about 150 GWh of electricity per year, which is
  roughly equal to the annual demand from

Since electric vehicles cut CO2
emissions to a quarter as they
replace gasoline-powered
vehicles, the Action Plan for
Achieving a Low-Carbon Society,
endorsed by the Cabinet in July,
calls for efforts to expand the use
of electric vehicles so that one
half of all new cars sold by 2020
are next-generation vehicles.
