flag of South Korea

The Clean Energy Solutions Center provided the Korea Electric Power Corporation with information on how to successfully meet and exceed renewable energy requirements subsequent to the recent implementation of a national renewable energy portfolio standard (RPS). The request focused not only on how to meet the standard’s percentage requirements overall, but also on how to comply with a mandate that a certain amount of renewable electricity generation must be produced within the country.

Impact of Assistance

Clean Energy Solutions Center policy experts provided guidance to the Korea Electric Power Corporation that will allow it to comply with South Korea’s RPS requirement in a way that is most cost-effective to the utility and its customers. The support provided by the Solutions Center will also increase South Korea’s probability of successfully meeting or exceeding its RPS targets.
