[Press Release] March 23rd, 2011
From “unplanned power outage” to “strategic energy shift” Report on Energy Shift after March 11th.
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.
