During the meeting, Minister Sung and Director Zhang explored potential cooperation opportunities between the two countries in a range of areas, including electric power grids, natural gas, renewables, and energy-related new industries.
Minister Sung said that further cooperation between Korea and China is needed to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases and fine dust even though the two countries are pursuing an energy transformation that decreases coal-based power generation and increases the share of renewables.
