|Policy description|| This will greatly reduce the dependence on the nuclear power plants, which was approx. 30% before the Great East Japan Earthquake, to approx. 20 to 22%. Also, the base load rate consisting of hydropower, coal - fired thermal power, nuclear power, etc., will be approx. 56%.
This will improve our energy self - sufficiency rate to approx. 24.3%, which has dropped greatly since the Great East Japan Earthquake. Also, CO2 emissions from energy sources will be 21.9% lower than the total GHG emissions in FY2013.
