Japan’s Energy Conundrum tackles Japan’s attempts to manage and balance domestic supply and demand for energy, changing global energy markets, its climate change goals, and its overall energy security in the years after March 11, 2011. Through evaluating Japan’s energy situation, the book assesses the challenges that remain, provides recommendations for Japan going forward, and suggests areas of potential U.S.-Japan cooperation to help both countries achieve their energy goals.
