Lecture Information
On October 31, the Sasakawa Peace Foundation hosted the Honorable Dr. Ernest Moniz, the United States Secretary of Energy, to address current U.S. policy on energy and on the Japan-U.S. bilateral relationship. Energy is one of the most important issues for the future of Japan and the international world as a source of electric supply. It has also broader implications for the economy, environment and national security. Additionally, the shale gas revolution in the US and the Fukushima accident in Japan have also drawn attention to future of U.S.-Japan energy cooperation and the energy policies of both countries. Secretary Moniz will address the issues of U.S.-Japan future cooperation on energy, including nuclear and clean energies, and the implications of these policies for climate change.

This is his first trip to Japan since Dr.Moniz was appointed as U.S. Secretary of Energy in May 2013. Prior to his appointment, Dr. Moniz was the Cecil and Ida Green Professor of Physics and Engineering Systems at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), where he was a faculty member since 1973.
From 1997 until January 2001, Dr.Moniz served as Under Secretary of the Department of Energy. He was responsible for overseeing the Department’s science and energy programs, leading a comprehensive review of nuclear weapons stockpile stewardship, and serving as the Secretary’s special negotiator for the disposition of Russian nuclear materials. From 1995 to 1997, he served as Associate Director for Science in the Office of Science and Technology Policy in the Executive Office of the President.

The lecture provided an opportunity to understand U.S. Energy policies and its implications for the future of the U.S.-Japan relationship.
