Power consumption rate remains only 83.9 percent in Tepco area this summer without any nuclear power

According to Tepco, the ratio of power consumption and supply stays only 83.9% this summer, which is without nuclear power.

This is the average of maximum ratio from July to 8/9/2015 in Tepco’s area.

It is considered to be power shortage if the ratio goes over 97%. In reality, the ratio remained less than 89% in 30 days out of these 40 days. Even the highest rate was only 93% (7/14/2015).

METI (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry)  forecast in April that the ratio would be 89~91% this summer.

The actual ratio was lower than their forecast.


From the end of this July, the highest temperature went over 35℃ for continuous 8 days, which was the first time in recorded history.

Federation of Electric Power Companies suspended announcing the ratio of entire Japan to state they cannot properly receive data at this moment for some reason.

Le taux de consommation électrique de cet été, sans nucléaire, reste à 83,9 % dans la zone de distribution de Tepco


Selon Tepco, le rapport consommation/production d’électricité reste à 83,9 % seulement cet été, sans énergie nucléaire.

Il s’agit de la moyenne de ce rapport pour juillet jusqu’au 9 août 2015 dans la zone de Tepco.
On considère qu’il y a pénurie lorsque ce rapport dépasse 97 %. En réalité, le rapport est resté en dessous de 89% sur 30 jours de ces 40 derniers. Le record a même été de 93 % seulement (le 14 juillet 2015).
Le METI (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry) avait anticipé en avril que ce rapport serait autour de 89~91 % cet été.
La réalité est inférieure à leurs prévisions.

Depuis fin juillet, le record de température a dépassé 35 ℃ pendant 8 jours sans arrêt, ce qui constitue le record historique.
La Federation of Electric Power Companies avait retardé la publication de ce rapport pour tout le Japon en affirmant qu’ils n’avaient pas encore correctement reçu toutes les données.


About this site

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.
