Greetings from the Seoul Metropolitan Government. It is my great pleasure and honor to invite you to the Seoul International Energy Conference 2017 under the theme of “Five Years of One Less Nuclear Power Plant: Progress & Challenges.”
Seoul is transforming itself from an energy-consuming city into an energy self-sufficient one thanks to the One Less Nuclear Power Plant initiative that has continued from 2012. During the last five years, Seoul has made considerable achievements in energy production, efficiency and GHG emissions reduction.
Building on the One Less Nuclear Power Plant, Seoul will remain committed to becoming an energy producer from an energy consumer, and seek energy justice in its endeavor to enhance energy self-sufficiency.
The Seoul International Energy Conference 2017 is being held at a time when phase 2 of One Less Nuclear Power Plant initiative, “Seoul Sustainable Energy Action Plan,” takes root, and it will be a meaningful occasion for us to look back at the progress made during the past five years and pave the way for an energy-efficient future.
Please join us at the Seoul International Energy Conference 2017 and take the opportunity to get innovative insights from the world’s renowned scholars and experts on the future direction of energy policy with the world’s greatest scholars and experts.
