ABSTRACT
The article reports on the increase in domestic shipments of solar cells and modules in Japan to 3,809 megawatts in the 12 months ended March 31, 2013 from 1,404 megawatts the previous year. The increase was the largest since 1981 as government efforts to spur clean energy after the 2011 Fukushima disaster began to pay off. It underscores the popularity of solar as pressures mount to boost energy supplies following the shutdown of the nation's nuclear reactors.
