Abstract

Disaster is pushing Japan towards more sustainable and ecologically friendly energy technology. Nuclear energy has been a national strategic priority since 1973. Development of new technology in fast-breeder reactors was backed by government ministries, the Japan Atomic Energy Agency and the Federation of Electric Power Companies. Electricity supply by Nuclear power was expected to increase to 40% by 2019. This is now under review following the 2011 Fukushima accident. The 2011 disaster had a major and disruptive effect on energy supply in Japan. Japanese society began questioning the nuclear energy policy and is starting to focus on energy saving strategies leading to sustainable lifestyles which will be beneficial to future generations. They are moving on from grieving by focusing on finding new solutions to their community problems. Perhaps there is a lesson for us in Australia.
