March 5 (Bloomberg) -- Japan will mobilize “all necessary policies” to expand the use of clean energy, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said today.

Abe, addressing a budget committee in parliament, said that the country plans to utilize the incentive program for renewables that started in July 2012 and to push deregulation and technological development, adding that renewables are important for energy security.

“We will mobilize all necessary policies to introduce clean energy,” he said. His comments come as Japan reviews its energy policies a week before the three-year anniversary of the Fukushima nuclear disaster.
