Enerdynamics Instructor Examines Post-Nuclear Japan in Series for Solar Today Magazine

Dan Bihn is one of Enerdynamics’ talented instructors who primarily teaches courses relating to renewable energy and the Smart Grid. Dan is currently writing a series of articles on “Post-Nuclear Japan” for Solar Today Magazine. He lived in Japan for seven years and speaks fluent Japanese, each of which has allowed him to more intimately study and understand the issues Japan faces as it looks to rebuild and redefine its energy plan.

Dan’s most recent article in Solar Today Magazine is titled Home Energy Management: Japan’s Market Model for the Energy Future.  The article examines Japan’s energy future in light of the tragedies of March 11, 2011. Writes Dan:

“The massive 9.0 earthquake of March 11, 2011 (the day is now known in Japan as 3-11) moved the earth’s axis nearly a foot and triggered the calamitous tsunami that killed some 20,000 people.

It also swept away Japan’s post-war energy policy, clearing space for a new smarter, cleaner and safer policy. Today, Japan stands with one foot planted on 20th-century nuclear power. The other foot seeks purchase on a smart energy platform, powered by the sun and the wind.”
