Since the Great East Japan Earthquake, Japan has faced increasingly insecure energy demand and supply, energy policy, and climate change policy conditions. It is now essential to have an integrated energy portfolio considering economic strategy, climate change policy, and energy security. This project studies the impact of recent economic changes in energy demand and supply, and builds an economic model upon it after taking into account the changes in industrial and market structures which are caused by business establishments' closures, entries, movements, productivity decreases, and other factors. Based on this economic model, a direction for energy policy, global warming policy, economic policy, and reconstruction policy hereafter will be proposed.
