The earthquake and consequent massive tsunami on March 11 in 2011 caused serious gap between power supply and demand. Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) started an unprecedented rationing of power, however, this suspension of power is not fully planned, which has thrown people into extreme confusion.

Institute for Sustainable Energy Policies (ISEP) examined its capacity for power supply in the Kanto region (Tokyo and surrounding area) as well as its past demand. As a result, ISEP proposes public policies in both short and mid/long terms.
