Before the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear accident, around 29.2% of Japan"s electricity was nuclear-generated. After the accident, all 48 plants were shut down for safety reasons. However, the Japanese government has argued that the shutdown has hurt the economy, forcing Japan to import expensive fossil fuels to make up the electricity shortfall. In order to reduce the fuel cost burden to its economy, by the end of 2014, Sendai nuclear power plants and Takahama nuclear power plants have already been granted licenses for restart However, there are still hurtles to be overcame. The Japanese Government has yet to decide how much electricity should come from nuclear energy. The restart of Japanese nuclear reactors will not only affect the Japanese economy but also countries in the Asia Pacific region. In view of this, top international consultant and scholars have been invited to present the latest status and their view on the restart programme of Japanese reactors.
