Japan's Energy Policy

Energy is the foundation that supports all human activities.
Japan cannot keep developing without establishing an energy supply-demand structure that realizes a stable energy supply system which imposes a light burden on society.
However, Resource-poor Japan’s energy supply-demand structure is vulnerable. 

 When promoting the energy policy, it is important to look at the entire supply chain of energy from production and procurement to distribution and consumption in order to tackle mid- to long-term issues after clarifying basic viewpoints.

The point of the energy policy is to first and foremost ensure stable supply (“Energy Security”), and realize low cost energy supply by enhancing its efficiency (“Economic Efficiency”) on the premise of “Safety.” It is also important to make maximum efforts to pursue environment suitability (“Environment”).
