The end of oil-burn in Japan's power sector


The end of oil-burn in Japan's power sector

Report summary

Japan's oil use in power generation will return to pre-Fukushima levels due to nuclear restarts. Wood Mackenzie expects 15 nuclear reactors will be operating in Japan by 2018, compared to just two reactors that are currently active. Liberalisation of Japanese power market (starting April 2016) will make oil an increasingly marginal source of power generation. Oil's share within the power market falls from 9.5% in 2016 to 5.6% in 2025, halving yet again to 2.8% by 2035.
