- This thesis explores the measures for the Japanese
electric power utilities to meet the Kyoto Target, and the
technological development of the coal thermal power generation to
meet the further abatement of the carbon dioxide beyond Kyoto. To
meet the Kyoto Target, the present measure by the Japanese
government to reduce the carbon dioxide emissions in the energy
sector relies much on the development of the nuclear power
generation. Therefore, the current delay of nuclear power
development, mainly due to the lack of public acceptance for the
nuclear energy, and, consequently, the increase of the carbon
dioxide emissions are crucial problems to be solved to the achieve
the target. In this paper, possible measures to achieve the
abatement target of the carbon dioxide emissions are examined.
Among the five measures, changing dispatch from high carbon
emitting capacity to low emitting one provides a sufficient
abatement with relatively low cost. Other measures, like wind power
or re-powering of existing thermal power plant require the higher
abatement cost or fail to provide sufficient quantities. Looking at
the scenario beyond the Kyoto Target after 2012, further reduction
of the carbon dioxide emissions calls for the technological
development. Since the uncertainty of the nuclear power development
will still remain in the future, and other measures including
re-dispatch and re-powering can not afford to provide further
reduction, the development of the generating technologies is one of
the crucial measures to reduce the carbon dioxide emissions.
Especially, the technologies for coal thermal power, which are
expected to be the most stable and inexpensive energy resources in
a few decade, affect the strategy for the global warming. The
developing technologies, the coal
- (cont.) gasification and the carbon dioxide
sequestration are examined in the latter chapter.
