1 Scenario Design As shown in Fig. 6, there are three nuclear power development cases in the supply side, and five electric device combinations in demand side. 2 Results The electricity mix, excess electricity and CO2 emission of all scenarios are shown in Figs. 7, 8 and 9 respectively. If the “N1” is selected, even renewable is developed as much as possible; Japan will have to use LNG to supply more than 30% its electricity, and thus face CO2 emission/climate change pressure. On the other hand, in case of the “N3”, much more excess electricity happens and the people in the country have to face more potential dangers of nuclear power.
