Japan’s New Energy Plan Could be Positive for Uranium’s Future

Japan isn’t giving up on nuclear yet, and its Cabinet’s recent approval of a new energyplan could be the first step toward a uranium market turnaround. The plan calls the heavy metal “an important baseload power source,” reinstating its importance in the Japanese energy mix.

The plan also confirms that Japan’s “[nuclear] reactors will be restarted once their safety is confirmed,” and is the first since Japan halted the operation of its nearly 50 nuclear reactors following the Fukushima disaster in early 2011.

Thursday night, the Japanese government approved the energy plan following drafts released earlier this year. A prior draft meant to be released in January was seen by a panel of experts as too dependent on nuclear energy, but Reuters states that Prime Minister Shinzo Abe fought for months to convince fellow Cabinet members to accept a draft that reinstates nuclear power. Still, Japanese Industry Minister Toshimitsu Motegi told the news outlet, “[t]he plan makes clear we will reduce reliance on nuclear power through a variety of measures.”
