Chapter Summary

This chapter examines four aspects of new and renewable energy development in Korea: Korea's response to climate change and international agreements; the status of new and renewable energy development in leading countries; the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (LOSC), which ensures the rights of coastal States to develop new and renewable energy in world's oceans; and how these rights allow for the construction of ocean energy facilities. It discusses current Korean laws related to development of ocean energy and the protection of ocean environment. The chapter presents details regarding Korea's national policies related to new and renewable energy development, the potential contributions of maritime sector, and directions to take to realize the goal of 13 per cent new and renewable energy consumption by 2030. The national interest in new and renewable energy has emerged from concerns over fossil fuel use and environmental crisis of climate change.
