Japan May Be Abandoning Nuclear Power Totally By 2030s
The National Diet of Japan is under a hard pressure of the majority of Japanese citizens to abandon nuclear power in near future
According to news agencies and newspaper articles it is now obvious that Japan is making a decision next weekend to completely abandon nuclear power by 2030s. This would happen by neglicting all new plans to built new reactors and limiting the maximum reactor running age to 40 years. So the old reactors would be stopped "naturally" due to ageing.
Japan would increase its efforts to use natural gas but especially renewable energy, energy saving and intelligent power grids in achieving the goal to become a totally nuclear free nation.
