Abstract

This article proposes how Korea could integrate the energy source of methane hydrates into its Framework for Low Carbon, Green Growth, along with the coordinating New and Renewable Energy Act and the Energy Act. Korea has an energy crisis and a climate change crisis. Korea is a highly industrialized country with massive energy needs. The vast majority of Korea’s energy supplies must be imported and are usually extracted by non-Korean companies. Korea is also one of the locations more dramatically affected by global climate change. Korea will face more significant changes in sea-level change, precipitation, and other environmental stresses compared to most other developed economies. Korea needs an energy solution that will also serve as a climate change solution; it needs a green energy solution. Methane hydrates could be a part of that solution. (The rest omitted)
