Kansai Economic Federation (KEF) appears to support transition to a low-carbon energy sector in order to achieve 80% GHG emission reduction by 2050, while suggesting diversity in energy sources are required to ensure resilience to natural disasters. In the same statement on its comments to the Long term strategy for Paris Agreement published on the website in Dec 2018, KEF also appears to support electrification of energy through increased renewable and nuclear energy. However, KEF appeared to suggest support for energy transition with major exceptions that back up from thermal coal is maintained, stated in its comments on the energy mix strategy, published on its website in 2017. KEF appear to have mixed support for renewable energy legislation, only supporting a legislation that will bring renewable costs down, described in a statement on the energy mix strategy in Dec 2017. In 2017, 2018 and 2019, KEF stated on related Government strategies that they do not support carbon tax as it may divert investment away from technological development and increase energy costs. KEF have also opposed emissions trading for the same reasons in 2018 and 2017. In 2019 the chairman of KEF stated opposition to carbon pricing.
