Abstract:

In view of the world-wide energy crisis and environmental problems, it is recommended that Japan, as a country with no note-worthy natural resources, should immediately establish a national project in order to advance research and development programs of new energy technologies. The present status of technological development, in Japan and in other countries is reviewed. Solar energy, geothermal energy, synthetic natural gases and hydrogen energy are chosen as important subject matters of future research and development. If the presented time schedule is followed, a fairly large portion of the total demand for energy will be supplied by these new energy sources by the year 2000.
