Japan - Forced To Take The Nuclear Option

The future of Japan's nuclear energy sector looked highly uncertain following the 2011 Fukushima disaster, but BMI now believes that the high cost of imported fuel will force the country to bring almost half of its idled nuclear facilities back online. Business Monitor's Energy team explained the analysis behind this view in a recently published special report entitled Japan - Economic Realities To Dictate Nuclear Restarts, which examines the outlook for the Japanese energy sector. This podcast features Power Analyst Andrew Shepherd, Country Risk Analyst Esther Ye and Power and Renewables Analyst David Ng, who all contributed to that report.
