ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the energy policy of elected Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. The prime minister promised a 10.3 trillion yen fiscal stimulus that allocates funding for energy efficiency programs in the hope of reinvigorating the lagging national economy. Experts note the country is missing its renewable energy targets. They also note that Japan's energy policy aims at coping with short-run power-supply deficiencies rather than an aggressive technological deployment. They point to a conspicuous lack of coordination by the central government and a seeming opposition from some businesses.
