Workers stand near the No. 4 reactor building at Tokyo Electric Power Co.'s (Tepco) Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear power plant in Okuma Town, Fukushima Prefecture on May 26, 2012. Prior to tsunami-sparked meltdowns at Fukushima, resource-poor but energy-hungry Japan relied on nuclear for about a third of its electricity needs, a figure policymakers intended to boost to 50 percent. But since the accident, increasing public distrust has meant reactors shuttered for routine safety checks have not been allowed to restart, such that the country's entire stable is now offline.
