Based on the Strategic Energy Plan, the Long-term Energy Supply and Demand Outlook presents the ideal structure of energy supply and demand that can be realized if appropriate measures are taken based on the fundamental direction of energy policies by envisioning policy objectives to be achieved on safety, energy security, economic efficiency, and environment, which are the basic ideas of the policies.

Based on the policies stipulated in the Strategic Energy Plan, which the Cabinet approved in April 2014, METI established the Long-term Energy Supply and Demand Subcommittee under the Strategic Policy Committee of the Advisory Committee for Natural Resources and Energy in order to consider a future vision of a realistic, yet well-balanced energy supply and demand structure. So far, a total of 11 meetings on these matters have been held.
