Japan Task Force
Challenge: The earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown catastrophes of 3.11 in Japan caused severe electric power capacity shortages and revealed long-term structural deficiencies within the power industry.
Solution: Diversity the energy mix, deploy demand-side management solutions, develop global energy innovation ecosystems, sponsor moonshot projects, and leverage market position as the world’s largest LNG importing country.
In partnership with the Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC), the Abu Dhabi Water & Electricity Authority (ADWEA), and the Abu Dhabi National Energy Company (TAQA), we organized a by invitation roundtable and technology showcase at JBIC Hall in Tokyo.

We developed a policy and technology roadmap to year 2030 for Japan’s energy industry and showcased state-of-the-art and next generation energy technologies from around the world that addressed challenges caused by the 3.11 catastrophes and that have the potential to reposition Japan as a leader in global energy.
