Kick-starting competition in Japan's power sector

Report summary

Unlike Japan’s previous power sector liberalisation measures, current efforts are both more urgent and far-reaching, focusing on improving third-party access to transmission and distribution that has prevented competition and limited cross-regional trade. While challenges remain, we see hopeful signs that both incumbent utilities and new entrants are beginning to prepare for increased competition.
