Keep at it Koizumi-san. The time for coal is over.

If Japan wants to export ready to go plants, I would suggest waste management and incineration.

They have the technology and systems that a lot of countries need.

With many countries banning the importation of waste (ie, China, Malaysia, Thailand, Phillipines) the mature Japanese waste managemnet and incineration systems (which use the generated heat) is a pretty good answer to the garbage/waste problem.

better PR than coal fired generators.

In addition to reviewing exports of coal plants, they should also be reviewing plans to build them domestically.

Hmmmmm....  no coal.  No nuclear.  Other renewables still a long way to be equally useful or efficient.  What to do?

Agree on waste management.  Good way forward,
