Llewelyn Hughes, recent Japan Studies Visiting Fellow at the East-West Center in Washington, explains that "The clean energy innovation agenda announced by the US and Japanese governments in their Shared Vision for the Future should retain a focus on how to better cooperate in standards setting, in consultation with European and other partners, in order to expand markets, drive down costs, and promote the deployment of more energy efficient technologies."
