This study provides information on the energy status of Jeju Island in Korea (located at south of the Korean Peninsula); including general demographics; primary energy consumption and energy consumption by source; energy consumption by sector; power generation; and new and renewable energy.

The purpose of this study is to establish a regional sustainable energy supply system and to promote new and renewable energy industries throughout Jeju. Although Jeju; and Korea in general; already have some renewable energy development; there is strong demand and desire to greatly expand the level of renewable energy adoption. Jeju will not only expand the solar and wind industries; but also pursue bioenergy; geothermal power; hydropower; stationary and mobile fuel cells; ocean energy; and waste energy.

Jeju’s regional energy planning is based on the Energy Basic Law established in 2006. Specifically; these programs have included policies supporting loans for purchase of renewable energy infrastructure; subsidies for renewable-based facilities; the 100 thousand green homes program; subsidies for solar thermal development; subsidies for local government investment in green technology; certificate programs; training programs; feed-intariffs; the formulation of new companies specialized in new and renewable energy; and regulations for mandatory use of new and renewable energy in new public buildings.
