Presentation
3rd Japanese- German Workshop on Renewable Energies
Author:

Achieving long term climate mitigation targets for Japan requires deep transformations in the energy system, in particular in the power generation sector. Decarbonization of this sector is unclear due to the uncertain nuclear policy after the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake. However, many other uncertainties need to be considered, namely the...
