Abstract

With a view to deepening the preceding approach through a Japanese case study, the contributions of 20 Japanese experts, mostly from academia but also from the public administration and industry, are added. In order to structure their contributions, the following argumentation is used:
  1. 1

    The starting point is the present Japanese energy-policy and its outlook.

     
  2. 2

    A major determinant of future energy provision is stress on the environment, causing both local and global risks.

     
  3. 3

    The two single most important steps towards a new energy regime are (1) raising energy efficiency and (2) increasing the use of renewable energy, in particular by photovoltaics.

     
  4. 4

    Energy politics is deeply embedded in a societal context. Therefore, aspects of change of society and structures of energy supply and consumption are relevant.

     
  5. 5

    Societies are reflected and shaped by their media.

     
  6. 6

    Energy provision and use as well as its societal context may aim at different futures or are evolving into one or the other of them.
