 世界経済の成長センターとなってきた東アジアが様々なリスクにさらされています。緊張が高まる台湾海峡や朝鮮半島といった伝統的な安全保障リスクだけではありません。中国の台頭などによるパワーシフトと戦後の国際秩序の揺らぎが地政学的リスクを増大させ、「新冷戦」とも称される米中の大国間競争の影響が地域の経済や産業、科学技術、文化、教育など多方面に及び始めています。米ソの冷戦の最前線が欧州だったのに対し、「新冷戦」の最前線は東アジアだとの見方があります。
 この地域の著しい技術革新や産業経済の発展自体も新たなリスクをもたらしています。人工知能(AI)などのデジタル技術の発展はさらなる経済成長のエンジンとなる一方、人々の想像を超えて、経済社会の在り方そのものを変える可能性があります...

Working Paper

電力需要・電源設備容量が2018年度実績値又は2030年度エネルギー需給見通し(以下、2030需給見通し)見込値と同量を想定するシナリオに対して、発電コスト検証ワーキンググループ(以下、発電コスト検証WG)が想定する燃料費用及びCO2対策費用を発電ユニットごとに課す条件を与えて、実潮流に基づく電力系統運用(1時間毎の価格シグナルを用いたメリットオーダー方式による広域電力系統運用)をシミュレーションすると、2018年度実績値や2030需給見通し見込値よりも石炭火力の発電電力量が小さくなる代わりに、ガス火力の発電電力量が大きくなることが確認された。

そのため、2030年度までに再稼働できる原発の基数が2030需給見通しの見込値よりも小さくなっても(本分析では...
