The nuclear accident caused by the Great East Japan Earthquake has drawn the attention of people's anxiety and concerns regarding energy.
Kyoto City has designed a strategy based on its citizen's feedbacks, as being a big energy consuming region and has a responsibility to take a proactive stance for energy policy.
As setting a specific target, to decrease 15% of the annual energy consumption by 2020 compared with Year 2010, and also to increase the amount of implementation of renewable energies to more than three times.
