To examine how to recover from a large-scale blackout Recovery Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry September 24, 13:16
In response to TEPCO's initial outlook for recovery due to a large-scale power outage in Chiba Prefecture, the Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry identified the damage situation and the outlook for recovery from power outage after verifying this response. Clarified the idea of examining the way of publication.
Regarding the power outage in Chiba Prefecture, TEPCO initially indicated that it would be restored by the 11th, but after that it was corrected several times, resulting in a prolonged power outage.
Regarding this, the Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry said at a press conference after the Cabinet meeting, “The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry is committed to a system that can accurately grasp and publish information in cooperation with electric power companies.”
After that, after verifying the response of TEPCO and the government this time, he said, “We want to establish a framework for verification and to make a way to minimize damage in the future in the event of a disaster or typhoon.” Clarified the idea of considering the status of damage and the disclosure of the outage recovery outlook.
In addition, in order to rescue SMEs affected by the disaster, when Minami-machi, which has been confirmed to have been damaged at the present time, was first designated as a “local disaster”, other municipalities would also provide support measures. The idea to expand was shown.
Specifically, it provides support for municipalities that have been subject to the Disaster Relief Act for a long time due to blackouts, such as reducing interest rates on loans for disaster recovery.
