TOKYO (Reuters) - A lower house committee of Japan's parliament passed a bill on Tuesday to promote investment in solar and other renewable energy sources, marking an important step toward the country's goal of reducing its reliance on nuclear power.

The radiation crisis at the tsunami-hit Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant has shattered the public's confidence in the safety of atomic power, prompting an overhaul of energy policy centered on boosting generation from solar and wind.
