A case study of new infrastructure in a tsunami-affected area damaged by the Great East Japan Earthquake that happened in 2011. When this area was affected by the 2011 tsunami, people lost their homes, and hospitals could not fully operate due to an electricity shutdown. But now this district has been rebuilt with a new-concept infrastructure called the “Smart Disaster-Ready Eco-Town Project”. By use of a smart grid within this project, it is possible to satisfy energy needs through the local production of renewable energy without using the Feed-in tariff.
