Economic impacts of long-term climate mitigation targets in Japan considering technological constraints

Event: 41st IAEE International Conference
Date: June 10-13 2018 (Groningen, The Netherlands)
Conference Paper

The achievement of long-term targets for climate mitigation in Japan faces several uncertainties with respect to the availability of power generation technologies. Starting with the difficult situation of nuclear power deployment after the 2011 events, the effect of technological constraints on the reduction of large amounts of greenhouse gases (GHGs) in the country, and the associated economic burden remains unclear. We assess the feasibility of climate mitigation targets in Japan up to year 2050 with a computable general equilibrium (CGE) model under several technological constraints in the power sector.
