Japan To Abandon Nuclear Power By 2030s: Report

Japan will abandon nuclear power within the next three decades under new government policy on the post-Fukushima energy mix, a newspaper said.

Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda’s administration will declare its intention to permanently shut down reactors by some time in the 2030s, the Mainichi Shimbun reported on Wednesday, citing unnamed government sources.

The move would bring resource-poor Japan into line with Germany, which has said it will wean itself off nuclear power by 2022, and comes as regular vocal protests against nuclear power continue.

The government “will formally decide at an energy and environment meeting this weekend” to stop the use of nuclear, the paper said.
