Reconstruction in Japan is on a larger scale than most countries may ever have to face. This is one of the reasons that planned co-generation of wind and solar farms is a main focus. Sustainable and renewable energy sources are being supported by interactive learning centers known as ‘green academies’. The educational centers are grooming the next generations to understand and support a variety of low carbon alternatives. In other areas, they are looking to industrial energy waste for reuse in heating hospitals and communal areas.
The reduction and dismantling of their nuclear facilities needs to be replaced with intelligent and renewable sources for their growing population. Reconstruction with a base in self-sufficiency and back up power provisions may be the main concept, but designing smart-communities that use industrial waste, biofuels and other renewable and sustainable alternatives for their power grids will address the main concern of low carbon and environmentally balanced approaches.
