South Korea focuses on clean energy



South Korea is refocusing its energy sector and moving away from nuclear power towards natural gas and renewables.
But the transition to a low-carbon economy will need a significant investment.
Al Jazeera’s Craig Leeson reports from Jeju, South Korea.

    Nuclear's are the best if you are capable to make a good project and the capacity to manage the plants,

  • 31 Knots says:

    There really is no better way of destroying any prospects of protecting the climate than shutting down nuclear plants. Just look at German CO2-emissions after 2011 or at Japanese CO2-emissions during the period of time after 2011 when no nuclear plants were operating in Japan.

    Good job south korea, whole world should use renewable energy

    Oh, so the Bankster / Oil Barons bought another politician, pushing their fossil energy hegemony energy, greenwashed with tidbits of scam renewable energy. Just as they foisted their stooges Macron & Hollande on France to replace their 90% clean energy (78% nuclear, 12% hydro) electricity supply, 7X cleaner than renewable promoter Germany. Renewable Germany with the highest electricity prices in Europe and the highest emissions per kwh produced. I wonder if Bankster stooge Macron spends $120k per year on his hair like his mentor Hollande.

    Renewable energy is NOT a viable replacement for fossil fuel. After spending over $2 trillion on wind & solar, total Solar & Wind is now up to 0.7% of World Energy supply, and world population & energy demand in developing nations growing rapidly. Total world energy consumption increasing about 1% each year. And most of the installed base will have to be replaced in 10-15 yrs avg. Hydro & Geothermal can be practical but are severely limited by geography. Main viable renewable is Hydro and it is eco-destructive on a massive scale. #2 renewable Biomass is even more eco-destructive & also polluting, as bad as coal.

    The EROI (Energy Return on Invested) for the Solar and Wind is far below what is needed for a viable fossil replacement. You need an EROI of 14:1 to sustain a modern civilization. Solar has an EROI of close to 1:1, that's without storage. And it needs storage. With the unavoidable storage Wind has an EROI of 3.9:1. Not even close to viable an alternative to fossil. In fact wind & solar are guarantors of a Fossil future. Which is why Big Oil endlessly promotes them. Learn about EROI: Go to EnergySkeptic & read "Tilting at Windmills, Spain’s disastrous attempt to replace fossil fuels with Solar PV, Part 1" and Part 2.

    Arabic countries don't want renewable energy technologies to develop.

  • Saint Pyron says:

    People who get excited that the country is pro-environmentalist like Germany, failed to understand that the absolute reason is because they don't produce oil. Meaning that it's only logical to use alternative and reliable sources of energy. Politicians only use environmentalism for political gains, not moral.
