At Energy strategy meeting, Kansai electric power company (Kepco) commented, whether power is in oversupply or in shortage, they want to restart the nuclear plants. It has nothing to do with the power supply to restart the nuclear plants (Ooi nuclear plants).
In case this summer is as hot as 2010, Japan will be in short of power by 0.4%. However, it is estimated that other 3 power companies can support Kepco. Power generation with pumped-up water would add even more power supply.
The reason why Kepco and other power companies try to stick to nuclear power is because almost half of their property is related to nuclear.
This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
