Japan to 'Mobilise All Necessary' renewables measures, Abe says

Thursday 06 March 2014

Japan will mobilize “all necessary policies” to expand the use of clean energy, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has said.

Abe, addressing a budget committee in parliament, said that the country plans to utilize the incentive program for renewables that started in July 2012 and to push deregulation and technological development, adding that renewables are important for energy security.

“We will mobilize all necessary policies to introduce clean energy,” he said. His comments come as Japan reviews its energy policies a week before the three-year anniversary of the Fukushima nuclear disaster.

This is a big statement from a country that has a hughly intensive energy requirement.
