The Korean-German Chamber of Commerce (KGCCI) supports market entry into Korea for German companies in the energy sector as well as German-Korean energy dialogues.

Korean-German Energy Partnership

After years of bilateral communication through the Energy Dialogue, Korea and Germany have decided to strengthen collaboration on energy transition. At the end of 2019, Minister Peter Altmaier of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi, now: German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action-BMWK) and former Minister Yun-mo Sung of the Korean Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy (MOTIE) signed a joint declaration of intent on the establishment of an Energy Partnership, representing an even closer bilateral engagement in the field of energy.

The Korean-German Energy Partnership aims to strengthen collaboration on energy policy between the two countries and enable them to face the future opportunities and challenges of the energy transition together. Korea and Germany are both ambitious in phasing out coal-fired power generation and expanding the use of renewable energy and hydrogen energy. Accordingly, cooperation of the two countries in the energy sector is focused on expansion and system integration of renewable energy, improvement of energy efficiency, and eco-friendly hydrogen.

After being designated as the official secretariat of the Korean-German Energy Partnership in 2021, KGCCI with adelphi together underpins cooperation between the two countries in various areas, facilitating interactions between policy makers and energy experts in close cooperation with stakeholders from both countries. In specific, KGCCI co-organizes and executes Korean-German Energy Partnership Working Group Meetings, energy workshops, expert meetings, delegation trips, and is also the co-organizer of the Korean-German Energy Day.

German Energy Solutions Initiative

German Energy Solutions Initiative, supported by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action, is one of the time-honored energy projects and celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2023. Under German Energy Solutions Initiative, German small and medium-sized in the field of energy are provided with support in entering the Korean market through various programs.

As an executive apparatus of the German Energy Solutions Initiative, KGCCI first submits analysis reports on Korean energy market and potential as well as proposals for promising projects and industries to Germany every year and organizes and carries out selected projects afterwards.

Types of programs include Energy Business Trip, Information Trip, and Information Event. Through these programs, German SMEs have the opportunity to visit Korea and vice versa; important market players of Korea also have the chance to visit Germany. Furthermore, market participants related to Germany can be provided with information on the Korean market.

KGCCI, as the implementer of such programs, has been successfully fulfilling various programs in cooperation with German implementers.

More information can be found on the official website of the German Energy Solutions Initiative.
