Analyzing the Energy Industry in Japan 2016
Resource-poor Japan is dependent on imports for 84% of its primary energy supply; even if nuclear energy is included in domestic energy, dependency is still at 81%. Following the two oil crises in the 1970s, Japan has diversified its energy sources through increased use of nuclear energy, natural gas and coal, as well as the promotion of energy efficiency and conservation. Despite these improvements, oil still accounts for about 50% of Japan’s primary energy supply, and nearly 90% of imported oil comes from the politically unstable Middle East. Moreover, prospects for importing electricity from neighboring countries are very poor because Japan is an island nation.

The government, has attached great importance to nuclear power as a key to ensuring national energy security, and is also considering assistance to help domestic firms in the intensifying global competition for fuel at nuclear power plants. Among those measures are financial aid and more investment-insurance coverage by government-affiliated organizations. Japan is already the world's third-largest nuclear power nation in terms of the number of civilian nuclear plants in operation.

However, following the Fukushima nuclear incident Japan's dependency on nuclear power has come under review. The government is faced with the difficult task of developing a new energy policy as the anti-nuclear sentiment grows within the country. Japan has decided to increase its reliance on renewable energy sources though these will still remain a long term option.

Aruvian Research’s report – Analyzing the Energy Industry in Japan - analyzes the scope of Japanese energy production from varied traditional sources as well as the developing renewable energy sources. In view of understanding energy transactions, the report also studies the revenue returns for investors in various energy channels which manifest themselves in Japanese energy demand and supply dynamics.

In depth view has been provided in this report of Japanese oil, electricity, natural gas, biofuel, and solar sectors. The various geopolitical interests and intentions governing the exploitation, production, trade and supply of these resources for energy production has also been analyzed by this report in a non-partisan manner.

We also look at the Fukushima nuclear disaster and the fallout it has had for the Japanese energy industry and how the energy landscape of the country is going to shape up in the coming years, while dealing with the anti-nuclear sentiment prevalent in the country now.

With an industry outlook for the global and the Japanese energy market, a profile of the top players in the Japanese energy industry – Aruvian’s report is a must-have!
