To ensure power supply, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida proposed to build a new nuclear power plant. After the Fukushima nuclear accident in the Great East Japan Earthquake, Japan shut down its existing nuclear power plants, subject to a safety review by the Japan Atomic Energy Regulatory Commission. Previously, about 30% of Japan’s total power generation relied on nuclear power plants, and nuclear power plants that have passed the review are being restarted. But of the 17 nuclear power plants that have passed the review, only six are now operating. The review has lasted nearly 10 years, and the nuclear power plant has not reached a conclusion. Nuclear power plants account for only 4% of Japan’s total power generation in 2020.
