Hiroaki Nakanishi, the president of Hitachi, told reporters that even in the wake of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster, it would “be impossible” for Japan to reduce dependence on nuclear power, and used the importance of “protecting the environment” as one of his arguments.

“It is impossible to end nuclear power generation and do everything with renewable energy such as solar and wind power generation,” given the importance of protecting the environment and economic efficiency, Hiroaki Nakanishi said in a press interview.
