After the Great East Japan Earthquake, the operation rate of nuclear power plants in Japan has suddenly dropped because of mounting concerns over the safety of nuclear power generation, and the consequent shortfall in power supply has been compensated by increased operation of LNG and oil-fired thermal power plants. However, the rising power costs due to increased procurement of these fossil fuels is placing heavy burden on the economy. Under these circumstances, the importance of coal has been being recognized again from the perspective of energy security as a highly reliable energy resource offering sustainable supply and economical efficiency.
