The world's major countries are aggressively preparing national strategic countermeasures in response to climate change, the fourth industrial revolution and tightening environmental regulations.
Korea is also preparing for the new energy paradigm in earnest. The government is working on a full-fledged response through a comprehensive energy transition policy, which includes a reduction in nuclear power usage and an expansion of environmentally-friendly energy. A core goal of these policies is the realization of a low-carbon economy by reducing energy dependence on nuclear power and coal, expanding renewable energy, and establishing energy governance. A variety of new and renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, and hydropower are being considered as part of a plan to in order to achieve a low-carbon society. In this situation, hydrogen can minimize the adverse effects of carbon dependence, such as resource depletion, environmental pollution and global warming as a natural and sustainable alternative energy source. In addition, it is worth considering the benefits of hydrogen in terms of energy security as well.
