Issues facing the nations and people of the world have changed significantly over the last fifty years. In this session, panelists from U.S. and Japan will look back on the history of the issues such as energy security, economic growth and climate change, and will discuss the roles nuclear energy can play in resolving some of the issues we currently face, as well as those we may expect in the future, adopting a perspective of the importance of U.S.-Japan cooperation.
This session will explain the current situation in Fukushima six years after the accident and the state of decommissioning at the Fukushima Daiichi NPS. After hearing about local activities dealing with the effects of the accident, participants may have suggestions on what the nuclear industry might further do toward Fukushima restoration.
During the past 50 years, more than 30 countries applied themselves to nuclear generation, accounting for a double-digit percentage of total electricity generation. We will hear in this session from some of them, including countries planning nuclear new build, and we will endeavor to develop suggestions for Japan and for meeting the expectations others have of Japan.
Young Japanese and others from overseas, who carry the future on their shoulders, will discuss what they see ahead, and want, for nuclear energy – what they hope to be able to do and what they believe will be necessary. Those from countries now planning to introduce nuclear generation will, in particular, be asked what they expect.
