Global energy revolution: Challenge from the local communities


Available in Japanese only.


Amidst global crises such as climate change, the depletion of energy resources, and the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident, rapid progress continues to be made in the field of renewable energy, referred to as “the fourth major revolution in human history.” Leading this trend is the so-called “decentralized energy revolution.” Mr. Iida will introduce examples of this energy shift and its dynamic unfolding in different parts of the world, and envision an energy revolution in Japan in the wake of the Great East Japan Earthquake.
