(Bloomberg) — Japan’s trade ministry will start reviewing generation costs from various power sources in January, the Mainichi newspaper reported today, without saying where it got the information.
The ministry will set up a task-force to put together cost estimates by the end of March, the paper said. The move follows similar estimates three years ago.
Estimated costs will be used to decide how much electricity should come from which sources by 2030, according to the Mainichi.
