Sustainable Future in Japan from Energy Technology Aspects

Dr. Kiichiro Ogawa

The Institute of Applied Energy, Japan

Energy and environmental issues are serious concerns to Japan because Japan is densely populated and highly industrialized, and has small land with little energy resource. Japan has been tackling these issues vigorously. Above all, recognizing the significance of the Kyoto Protocol, which offers the international commitment to reduce greenhouse gases emission, the Japanese government and industries have been actively addressing the issue with great efforts. Reflecting the above circumstances, this Lecturer presents the current Japanese energy situation, some examples of countermeasures for CO2 emission, and a more detailed explanation of typical technologies such as energy saving technologies, renewable energy technologies, and energy conversion technologies including nuclear energy. By introducing these features, this Lecturer offers some idea of the sustainable future in Japan, and expects it will be beneficial information for other countries, particularly for those who are thinking to adopt such programs in the future.
