Japan to start basic energy policy revamp

It will zero in on its 2030 generation targets.

Reuters reported that Tokyo will begin discussions on a revision of Japan's basic energy plan, Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry Hiroshige Seko said, although he expects no change in the basic structure of energy policy established in 2014.

The discussions by a ministry committee would focus on how the 2030 goals for power generation would be achieved, he said.

One of the main issues to be addressed will be the Japanese government plan to rely on nuclear power to generate 20 to 22 percent of the country's electricity by 2030.
