June 18-24 - Dr. Michelle Michot Foss traveled to Japan to give a lecture at the Graduate Research Institute for Policy Studies (GRIPS) and the Institute for Energy Economics Japan (IEEJ) in Tokyo. Dr Michot Foss and Prof. Hisanori Nei, former nuclear energy regulator and energy specialist, met with senior business and government on oil, gas and power market developments. Dr Michot Foss, Prof. Nei, and colleagues from IEEJ toured the Onagawa Nuclear Station hosted by Tohoku Power Company to observe progress in re-powering the nuclear units. Onagawa survived the 2011 earthquake and tsunami because of higher site elevations and other safety measures in the plant design.
