This publication is part of a series of briefs commissioned on the sidelines of the Pacific Energy Summit. The 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident and the ensuing nuclear shutdown called into question the future of Japan's energy landscape. Given the slow progress of restarting its nuclear reactors in recent years, today's low-price era has given Japan the opportunity to rebuild its own energy security, according to the author of this brief.
