Amory Lovins on Renewable in Japan and Germany

Blog post at the Rocky Mountain Institute.

Short version: Renewable in Japan compares to Germany like Japan’s soccer team to Germany’s. Only one of them is in the finals.

The good news for Japan is that it actually has the best renewable resources of all industrialized countries, as I learned from this article, with nine times Germany’s resources.

All it takes is some policy changes to unleash renewable power here as well.
