Employing lessons learned from the Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami, research and development of next-generation energy sources aims to provide eco-town plans for reconstruction in the Tohoku area.
Professor Kazuyuki Tohji of Tohoku University outlines an environmentally friendly energy vision to be applied in post-tsunami reconstruction.
Tohoku University researchers, in partnership with the University of Tokyo, have developed the concept of an energy management system which integrates both energy and transportation/communication infrastructures.
Harnessing clean, renewable ocean energy from waves and microalgae and other such next-generation energy sources will increase Japan’s energy security, promote [the clean energy] industry, and reconstruct improved, disaster-resistant communities [in Tohoku and throughout Japan].
