Abstract

Replacing oil, coal or gas with clean energies has become one of the most crucial issues that the world faces. 77% of the energy demand could be filled by renewable energy by 2050. About half of the renewable energy potential is operating and 2.5% of the technical potential in renewable energy use has been mastered, that’s why any question of the possibility of using clean energy is not justified. South Korea is a country without many primary resources; the country imports most of its energy. It is one of the 5 biggest importers of fuel fossil energy in the world. To be less dependent on foreign countries includes reducing these imports, so the part played by using renewable energy has to be increased. Moreover, the greenhouse gases emissions have to be reduced or at least the rise of such emissions has to be stopped. (The rest omitted)
