4th Korean-German Energy Day

Both Korea and Germany have pledged to achieve net zero emissions in the middle of the century. As advanced industrial economies, both countries are facing similar challenges in decarbonizing their energy systems. However, achieving Net Zero also comes with many possible economic benefits. Therefore, the title of the 4th Korean-Germany Energy Day is “Net Zero: Embrace the opportunities of the Energy Transition”.

The Korean-German Energy Day is part of the Korean-German Energy Partnership formed between the two ministries in December 2019. The event provides a platform for energy experts from government, industry, research and civil society to exchange views, engage with one another and learn from each other’s experiences.

This year’s Korean-German Energy Day(s) will focus on three main themes, each reflected in one of the conference days: The first day assesses the status quo of the energy transition in both countries, including focus sessions on relevant current topics. Day two explores the economic opportunities arising from the energy transition whereas the focus of the third day is on the role of green hydrogen in net-zero industry.

The main language of the event is English. The main parts will be translated simultaneously between Korean / English.
