How will Japan continue to juggle its high demand for energy, its condition as an island nation with few natural resources, lingering concerns surrounding nuclear power following the Fukushima incident, and environmental issues associated with cheap coal and oil imported from the crisis prone Middle East? With powerful voices backing different energy sources, it seems no policy pleases everyone. Jeffrey Miller, Energy Attaché at the United States Embassy in Tokyo, Japan, joins Asia Society to discuss Japan’s struggle to find a balanced energy strategy and its global implications.
