Energy Supply: Energy and Power

energy supply: Nuclear power and fossil fuels using carbon capture and storage are expected to account for 30% to 40%, with hydrogen making up much of the remainder, according to The Japan Times. The plan is to keep nuclear power as a main source of energy despite calls to raise the share of renewable energy sources even further. That in turn, has touched off a debate over whether more renewable energy or more nuclear power is the best way to provide a safe, stable, secure and green energy supply by the middle of the century. ; The current energy plan, adopted by the Cabinet in July 2018, calls for renewable sources to provide between 22% and 24% of Japan's electricity by 2030, and for nuclear energy to provide between 20% and 22%. On Dec. 25, the government announced that it was aiming to have renewable energy supply between 50% and 60% of the nation's electricity by 2050 nearly a threefold increase over current use. We will establish a stable supply of energy by thoroughly conserving energy and introducing renewable energies to the greatest possible extent, as well as by advancing our nuclear energy policy with the highest priority on safety, Suga said in October when announcing the 2050 carbon neutral target. The nuclear industry will strive to continuously improve the safety and stable operation of nuclear power generation, Japan Atomic Industrial Forum president Shiro Arai said in response to Suga's declaration. Nuclear power can contribute to supply stability and economic efficiency, which are important for decarbonization of the energy system. ( As reported in the news.
