Long-term Energy Strategies - Opportunities and Challenges for Phasing out Coal and Phasing in Renewables
As industry-based economies Korea and Germany face similar challenges when it comes to shaping their energy system’s future. Both countries aim to significantly reduce their carbon emissions by increasing the usage of renewable energy and energy efficiency while phasing out the use of nuclear energy and reducing the reliance on fossil fuels.
