Strategic Energy Plan

The Strategic Energy Plan aims at setting the government’s strategy on energy policy. The third version, released in 2014, sets emissions and other energy-related targets for 2030. The Plan notably defines an increased role of renewables in the medium and long terms, and determines the nuclear policy post Fukushima. The Long Term Energy Supply and Demand Outlook, released on July 16, 2015 by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, is based on the Strategic Energy Plan. The Outlook sets out the optimal combination of energy sources for 2030.
