Japan set target of nuclear energy to 20% of its energy mix by 2030! According to the IAEA, "by 2050, if climate change goals are to be met, around 80% of electricity will need to be low-carbon. All countries - both developed and developing - need to secure sufficient energy to drive economic growth and counter climate change."

Strategic Communications is pleased to announce the scheduling of its 6th Asian Nuclear Power Briefing 2018 taking place in Tokyo on 12th - 13th February 2018. With the global nuclear power industry reassessing their current and future energy road map, it is imperative for countries considering new build to rebuild confidence in nuclear power as a safe and reliable source of energy by ensuring nuclear safety and security.

According to Japan’s policy setting agency JAEC, nuclear power should remain a key component of Japan’s energy mix, recommending in a recent report that nuclear power account for at least 20% of Japan’s energy supply by 2030. Before Fukushima, nuclear power accounted for 30% of Japan’s energy with plans to increase it to 40%. After the 2011 accident, all of Japan’s reactors were closed and now 5 have restarted with 4 operational in 2016. On 13th September 2017, TEPCO received conditional approval to resume operations at Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear plant - one of the world’s largest nuclear plant. 7 years on from Fukushima’s disaster which left countries reconsidering their nuclear power options Japan has made considerable progress in rebuilding the Tohoku region over the last five years. It has also crafted a new basic national energy plan for the period up to Y2030.

This will necessitate re-starting up to 30GW of Japan’s indigenous nuclear capacity over the next 15 years that should help to contribute to meeting Japan’s UN decarbonization goals. We are now very confident that nuclear power is positioned to make a considerable contribution to decarbonizing Japan’s energy complex in the decades ahead.

Asia is the main region in the world where electricity generating capacity and specifically nuclear power is growing significantly. In East through to South Asia there are 128 operable nuclear power reactors, 40 under construction and firm plans to build a further 90.

Nuclear power is a proven source of reliable, cost effective and clean source of energy with long term benefits. The long term benefits of nuclear power still remain positive and with increased safety measures in place, nuclear power is a viable option and necessary as part of the energy mix.

Our annual nuclear power briefings bring together key stakeholders, regulators, government, EPCs, financial institutions and vendors to discuss openly and candidly about the future of nuclear power as a key element in the energy mix of the future.

The 6th Asian Nuclear Power Briefing 2018 will continue to take a pragmatic view of where the current global nuclear power industry stands and the way forward, it will address the opportunities available and the challenges faced in nuclear new build, finance options, commercializing SMRs and technological innovation, safety, security, climate change and decommissioning.
