On February 27, the Subcommittee on the Long-term Energy Supply-and-demand Outlook, under Japan’s Advisory Committee for Natural Resources and Energy, decided to set its projections for energy consumption for FY2030 nationwide at 377 million kl in crude-oil equivalents (365 million kl in FY12) and total electric power demand at 1,144 TWh (986 TWh in FY12).

The projections were made in relation to the determination of the outlook for energy supply and demand before energy-saving measures are taken.

Concerning the projections, one member urged a consideration of future expected changes in industrial structure. Meanwhile, representatives of industrial organizations observing the meeting said that issues facing various industries should also be aired, including the limits to energy-saving measures.

The subcommittee chairman, Masahiro Sakane, councilor of Komatsu Ltd., suggested that “everyone should thoroughly discuss how much can be achieved by conserving energy and using renewable energies,” citing energy-saving efforts by his own company. He emphasized that the first step in energy-saving activities was “visualization.”
