Title: Republic of Korea and United States cooperative energy assessment. Executive summary

Abstract

The primary purpose of the cooperative energy assessment conducted by the Republic of Korea and the United States was to evaluate Korea's opportunities for fuel switching, conservation, renewable resources development, and the potential for application of new or advanced technologies (particularly synthetic fuels and nuclear power). All of these factors were evaluated under varying conditions, including different economic growth projections or scenarios, changes in the price of imported energy, and variations in the capital and operating costs of new energy technologies. Although some passible government strategies, such as delaying or promoting the use of nuclear power and renewables, were evaluated and are discussed herein, other strategy initiatives such as price controls or subsidies were not. An important assumption in this analysis was that there would be no significant discoveries of fossil fuels, primarily oil and gas, which would materially alter Korea's energy supply situation. The goals of this cooperative activity were (1) to provide the Korean planners with some preliminary information on the available energy alternatives, and (2) to provide the tools necessary for continuing the planning process, on a more refined and complete level, in Korea. In addition to this summary, the report consists of three volumes. Volume 1,more » the Main Report, contains the results of the assessment as well as the basic assumptions used in the analysis. Volume II, the Data Base, contains primarily data and computer printouts of results that were too bulky to include in the Main Report (Volume I). Volume III, Reference Reports, contains background material used to establish the data base for the assessment.« less
