  •  How Much Demand Reduction? (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    What was the percentage of Japanese demand reduction from 2010 to 2011? I suspect it was considerable given the concentrated public education campaign after Fukushima: "If you want to help, save electricity." The before and after pictures of Shinjuku at night are particularly instructive as to how much energy conservation the Japanese are capable of.

    They have also increased their solar developments beyond expectation.

    The nuclear power plants were shut down because the Japanese government, not in any sense an enemy of nuclear power, determined they needed to pass stress tests for safe operation.

    According to a recent NHK survey, only 2% of the Japanese public favors an expansion of nuclear power.

    Solar is civil defense. Video of my small scale solar experiments at solarray.
