Japan’s G7 Push for Gas Investments – Video

02 May 2023 – by ETA Editorial   Comments (0)

Japan is preparing to host 2023’s G7 summit in Hiroshima, where energy has become a focal point. As the energy transition worldwide is well underway, with clean energy from renewables setting new records, Japan is lagging.

Much of Japan’s energy system is still reliant on fossil fuels, which has, by and large, contributed to its continued push to see more investments into fossil fuel infrastructure at home and abroad, especially in gas. This has also led Japan to attempt to pressure other G7 countries into continuing fossil fuel investments. However, despite Japan’s wishes, many G7 nations like Canada and the UK have rejected calls for significant investments into fossil fuels from now on.
