Description:

The electricity shortage which occurred during the closure of nuclear plants following the heavy earthquake and tsunami, prompted the government to announce the national electricity saving action, the “Summer Energy Conservation Measures”, to encourage the general public to follow these measures.

A 15% reduction target of peak electricity on weekdays from 9’o clock to 20’o clock was introduced for the months of July, August, and September. Other general measures include keeping the room temperature during air cooling at 28 degrees, etc.

Based on these plans, various energy saving actions and measures have been taken nationwide, which include big PR campaigns, advisory projects, hosting workshops and conference events to solicit the energy saving action to deal with the electricity crisis. 

The government announced the "save electricity in winter" campaign. It askes users to save electricity from September 2015 to May 2016, during daytime(from 9AM to 9PM). But it doesn't have numerical target.
