Social consensus regarding energy problems is essential to the sustaining development of humankind. In this laboratory, the strategy of disaster prevention in electricity sources is studied to construct safe and stable energy system focusing upon human disaster as well as natural disaster, especially by earthquake.

The current main research subjects are as follows:

  1. Study on the formation of public consensus on matters of energy in society.
  2. Study on the systematization of disaster prevention system focusing upon human disaster as well as natural disaster, especially by earthquake.
  3. Study on the strong ground motion prediction to mitigate earthquake disaster.
  4. Study on the strategy of earthquake disaster reduction in collaboration with local governments.
