Difficult and Expensive Energy Policy Problems in Japan

January 21, 2014 - 15:00-16:30

Stockholm Seminar on Japan
Lecturer: Professor Tomas Kåberger, Chalmers University of Technology
Japans nuclear strategy failed in 1998 and collapsed in 2011. Regional electric power monopolies are struggling for their economic and political survival threatening to harm the economy of the country. The electricity sector seems to be one key challenge for the vitalization ambition of the government. But can a Japanese government actually rule this industry?
Tomas Kåberger is professor of Industrial Energy Policy at Chalmers University of Technology and since 2011 he spends 25% of his time in Japan as executive board chairman of Japan Renewable Energy Foundation. Before 2011 he was Director General of the Swedish Energy Agency.

Venue: Ohlinrummet, 5th floor, Stockholm School of Economics, Sveavägen 65
