This study presents a multi-model analysis of long-term climate policy of Japan, whose mid-century strategy is subject to an ongoing policy debate, focusing on the carbon dioxide emissions in the energy sector. The models demonstrate multiple future pathways of the low-carbon energy system in Japan. The median of marginal abatement cost is found to...

Integrated assessment models (IAM) provide key information to allow policymakers to understand the possible outcomes of alternative development and climate policy scenarios. However, the complexity and large size of information resulting from IAMs, prevents straightforward communication of key insights to policy makers, unless a “translation...

Conference Paper
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...
