This study provides an overview of projected greenhouse gas emissions in seven major emitting countries up to 2030
Étiqueté : Japan
The March 2011 accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station turned Japan’s energy policy on its head, shedding a harsh new light on Japan’s energy policy and power supply system, and throwing into relief six major problem areas that had largely escaped scrutiny before the disaster…
The Geopolitics of Russian natural gas / Tatiana Mitrova . Baker III Institute for Public Policy, Rice University, April 2014, 100 p.
This ADB study includes the People’s Republic of China, Japan, the Republic of Korea, and Mongolia and examines how strategies for adapting to climate change up to 2050 can be combined with measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in East Asia
Developing growth strategies that promote greener lifestyles requires a good understanding of the factors that affect people’s behaviour towards the environment. Recent OECD work based on periodic surveys of more than 10 000 households across a number of countries and areas represents a breakthrough by providing a common framework to collect unique empirical evidence for better policy design This publication presents a data overview of the most recent round of the survey implemented in five areas (energy, food, transport, waste, and water) and 11 countries: Australia, Canada, Chile, France, Israel, Japan, Korea, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland…
“This paper sets out the complex relationship between the gas deals pursued between Russia and the Northeast Asian countries, the economic and political factors that have shaped negotiations, and the influence of recent developments in the region. The paper argues that there is a short window of opportunity for all parties to reach a win–win outcome…”
To help facilitate the deployment of smart grids, the World Energy Council (WEC) has put together this report to shed light on the current status of smart grids and the financing mechanisms for their development. The report aims to serve as a compendium of best practice examples of successful smart grid development in different countries (India, Japan, China, South Korea, Brazil, Europe and North America) and the factors contributing to their success with a special focus on funding mechanisms.

A Chatham House Briefing Paper
The earthquake and tsunami which left its toll of destruction and the tragic loss of life on Japan’s eastern seaboard on 11th March 2011 was a natural disaster of the highest order. This OIES working paper addresses methodically and in detail the extent of the impact of the events of 11th March 2011 on Japan’s energy complex and describes how, through higher utilisation of fossil fuel plant and enforced and voluntary demand conservation measures, the country has coped with this unprecedented reduction in generation capacity.
The book examines nuclear development in eight leading nuclear nations in order to identify the dominant forces which support nuclear power development in a given nation. For those of you who are wondering how Japan wound up with its nuclear power program, what Russia has been up to in nuclear power since Chernobyl and what we can expect in the way of nuclear power development in China…it may be worth checking out.
