Nuclear Energy Policy Issues after the 3.11 Fukushima Nuclear Accident — •Tatsujiro Suzuki — Vice Chairman, Japan Atomic Energy Commission
The Fukushima nuclear accident has become one of the worst accidents in nuclear history and it is not completely over yet. It will take at least 30 years or more to decontaminate and decommission the crippled nuclear reactors on site. Still, more than 140,000 people are away from home and restoring and assuring the life and welfare of those evacuated people is the top priority of Japanese government's nuclear energy policy. The government will release its new energy policy soon which will state that nuclear power is considered as an important base load electricity source, while committing to reduce its dependence as much as possible. For nuclear energy policy, there are certain important issues to be overcome regardless of future of nuclear power in Japan. They are; 1) spent fuel management and radioactive waste disposal, 2) restoring public trust 3) securing human resources and 4) plutonium stockpile management.
