Dr. Jennifer Sklarew on NPR's All Things Considered: The lag in the move towards renewable energy in Japan after the Fukushima disaster

ESP assistant professor Dr. Jennifer Sklarew was quoted in this article on renewable energy in Japan on NPR All Things Considered, as part of NPR's Recovering Fukushima series. 

"The institutions make a big difference," says Dr. Jennifer Sklarew, who teaches EVPP 432/533 Energy Policy. "If the people in place do not want to implement policies to empower the economics and the technology innovation, then it can't happen — regardless of how good those technologies are or how good the economics look."
