Japan and Fukushima Nuclear Energy Policy Â Case Solution
Governmentâ€™s action after Fukushima accident for energy policy
Due to of the contamination of water, the Government immediately treated and recycled water. A plant in 2013 was also establishedin order to provide sufficient water.

On economy of Japan
Dependency on the fossil fuels increased due to the catastrophe of nuclear supply that raised electricity consumption and affected the economy
Japanâ€™s nuclear power required utilizing resources which raised the prices of these resources, and these are as follows: coal to Â¥9.5, LNG to Â¥10.7 and oil raised to Â¥36. It was also estimated that the cost of nuclear would remain constantÂ by 2030 however,the increase in fossil fuel would significantly increase due to the imports.
Role of US Fleet Logistic Centre and Its Leader
After the accident of Fukushima, the seventh fleet of US navy, Yokosukaâ€™s Headquarter helped the Japanese government with 132 aircraft’s, 22 ship and more than 15,000 workforce.
The fleetâ€™s logistic centre assisted in Japanâ€™s recovery by providing ships and aircraft’s for the affected areas, along with volunteers and food supplies. In order to gain more command, the leader of the rescuing team should motivate his volunteers to provide help. He should also provide help to the victims and bring them out of fear, as this would lead them to a normal life and soon they would be recovered…………..
