We are always using electricity by just inserting a plug in a power outlet or by turning a switch on without any consciousness about where the electricity is coming from. There was a national referendum in May 2017 in Switzerland and people were asked whether the nation should step out of nuclear power or not. Mr. Miyake will discuss what we can learn from those arguments in the referendum, elaborate on Japanese current energy-related issues, and will give some insights about what is the benefit for companies to select certain energy resources from a sustainable management point of view.
Mr. Seiya Miyake is the COO of Minna-Denryoku Inc. Before joining Minna-Denryoku, he gained a lot of experience in management consulting for many energy companies and the government agency at KPMG, and at Arthur D. Little Japan for 8 years. He has also worked for 13 years as a nuclear power plant engineer at Kansai Electric Power Company. Mr. Miyake has contributed with a series of articles to many specialized magazines like “Nikkei Energy Next”, “Smart Grid”, “Energy Forum” and so on. He has obtained a Master Degree from Nagoya University in electrical engineering and an MBA from Kobe University.
