Accelerating with Renewable Energy
South Korea is accelerating its shift to cleaner, greener energy. It has set long term renewable energy targets. The government of South Korea wants to reach a goal of 35% renewable sources of energy by 2040. That is about four times the amount of renewables they are using right now.
South Korea Energy Mix
South Korea is currently utilizing 8% of renewable energy sources as part of its energy mix. They are highly reliant on coal generating plants and nuclear power for their electricity. They hope to have renewable energy sources up to 20% by 2030 and increase that significantly by 2040. The great news here is how many nations are setting schedules and agendas to make more renewable sources a significant part of the energy mix.
