After 3 years since that tsunami which caused the greatest suffered nuclear crisis in Japan, by destroying the nuclear plant in Fukushima, the current government of that country emphasized that will not waive to nuclear energy because the economic bill is too high.
This, despite opposition to nuclear power of a large part of the population, and technicians due to the emerging radiation leaks from the nuclear plant.
This is assured in the draft of energy policy introduced in late February by the Government, in which indicates, however, that the nuclear dependence will be reduced “as much as possible.” Prime Minister Shinzo Abe confirmed this this Monday.
The draft of the Basic Energy Plan states that the most reliable and stable source of electricity formula to meet the needs of Japan is a mixture of nuclear energy, renewable and fossil fuel.
In this way, nuclear power will remain an important source of electricity for the country, and the reactors will be put into operation again as they meet the new safety standards decreed after the crisis of 2011.
