Investments in renewable energy in Japan were heavily boosted in the aftermath of the Fukushima disaster which saw nuclear energy disappear from the energy mix of the nation. However, nuclear energy is now expected to make a return in the country in the coming years and this could have an impact on the growth of renewable energy in the country.
Nevertheless it Is important to remember that one of the major reasons for the return of nuclear energy in the country is to reduce Japan's reliance on fossil fuel based energy. The growth of renewable energy in the nation may as such not be too heavily impacted by the return of nuclear energy.
