4. Preparing for the Large-Scale Introduction of PV LargeIn order to allow for the large-scale introduction of solar power facilities at a minimum cost to society, it will be necessary to unify and improve the efficiency of all aspects of the system, including power generation and distribution and demand and supply-side measures, while expanding the use of nuclear power generation.
