This is the third in a series of reports on Japan's energy policy.

Nuclear power has been considered quite beneficial in every aspect of the so-called 3E's (energy security, economy and environment) of energy policy.

But the damage from nuclear accidents can be catastrophic, in addition to the challenges posed by nuclear waste disposal. The Fukushima disaster has led to strong opinions that Japan should denuclearize, and this is still the case. I'd like now to focus on the future of Japan's nuclear power technology.
