Korea is still strongly dependent on oil, coal and gas. However, the goal of the Korean government is to promote the use of renewable energy to cover 20% of energy with renewable energy by 2030. Korea is a strong player in the export market for solar energy and has enormous potential in the energy sector.

KGCCI organizes workshops, expert meetings and visits of high-ranking representatives of BMWi to Korea, as well as visits of high-ranking Korean representatives to Germany.



Export Initiative Energy

The "Export Initiative Energy" offers an opportunity to visit German companies in the fields of renewable energy, energy efficiency and storage technology. The aim of these business trips is to simplify entry to the Korean market and to build up a dense network of contacts and partners.

KGCCI provides a detailed analysis of the Korean energy market and organizes trips to Korea on this topic.
