Japan plans more renewables, less nuclear

Nuclear reactors like these in Kagoshima Prefecture may be brought back online.

TOKYO -- The Japanese government proposed Tuesday an optimal energy mix for 2030 that consists of 20-22% from nuclear power and up to 24% from renewable energy.

     Nuclear power would decrease from 28.6% before the March 2011 Fukushima meltdown while renewable energy would roughly double from about 11% in fiscal 2013.
