While Japan has been traditionally dependent on nuclear power, following the Fukushima nuclear disaster, the country has witnessed a surge in oil and gas-fired generation. In the aftermath of the Fukushima accident, Japan boosted its LNG imports and also began to operate its thermal power plants at near maximum capacity. Japan is known to have one of the most conducive atmospheres for the growth of the power sector in all of Asia. It has a favourable regulatory environment while there are no financial limitations to investment in the industry. Japan’s power grid infrastructure is also known to be one of the most well-developed in Asia.

The Japanese power industry is dominated by 10 integrated companies and even though the market has been deregularised, there are not many new players who have entered the market. These 10 utilities more or less control most of the Japanese power market.
