This paper explores Japan's energy and emissions-related choices up to 2050 using the Japan 2050 Low Carbon Navigator (Low Carbon Navigator), an energy and emissions scenario simulation tool based on the 2050 Pathways Calculator model. Using illustrative examples and scenarios, the paper demonstrates some unique features of the Low Carbon Navigator...
Presentation
International Forum for Sustainable Asia and the Pacific 2019
“Just Transition” is an important, brand new concept to implement policies towards decarbonisation of the power sector (DPS) in Japan. However, a knowledge gap still remains between this concept and policy discussion at a practical level. Therefore, using the existing DPS scenarios and employment factors for the power sector based on extended input...

BUAA-NIES Bilateral Workshop on Integrated Assessment of Health Co-benefits of Climate Change Mitigation Policy
This presentation highlights the following topics. - Relationships between 2030 mitigation target (NDC) and co-benefits such as health care and air pollution. - Assessment on the ambition of current Japan’s NDC by comparative study for model analysis and historical trend. - Showing an example on how to utilize or deliver the results from IAM models...
Peer-reviewed Article
In Climate Policy
Author:
Achieving long-term climate mitigation goals in Japan faces several challenges, starting with the uncertain nuclear power policy after the 2011 earthquake, the uncertain availability and progress of energy technologies, as well as energy security concerns in light of a high dependency on fuel imports. The combined weight of these challenges needs...
