About Jeju

Jeju Island, a carbon-free island for greenhouse gas reduction
Starting point of
climate change
response in Korea
  • 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development → starting cooperation of international level on climate change for the first time
  • 1997 Kyoto Protocol → prescribing international greenhouse gas reduction obligations
  • 2012 announcing "Carbon-Free Island Jeju by 2030" plan → presenting Jeju style greenhouse gas reduction policies
  • 2013 announcing the road map for CFI 2030 detailed implementation
  • 2015 Paris Climate Agreement → "spreading Carbon-Free Island Model"(VIPs'comments)
  • 2016 establishing CFI vision basic plan
  • 2017 Davos Forum → presenting Jeju as the global showcase of the fourth industrial revolution(Jeju Governor's comments)
  • 2019 modifying and revising 'Carbon-Free Island Jeju by 2030'
Why should
it be Jeju?
  • Over 15 million tourists a year visit Jeju

    · Listed as the world's only UNESCO triple crown-the treasure island of the environment
    - the New 7 Wonders of Nature, 2011
    - Biosphere Reserve (2002), World Natural Heritage (2007), Global Geopark (2010)

  • the ideal location to coexist with a clean nature

    - abundant renewable energy resources - such as
    the wind power and the light of the sun
    - enabled for traveling around Jeju island by
    charging an electric car one time

    Jeju Island Final Energy Goal
the strategy to achieve the goals
  • · propelling energy demand reduction strategy in building sector and industry sector focused on Energy Efficiency Resource Standards(EERS)¹ project - transiting from existing supply business of high efficiency energy usage device based on assistance to EESR business based on restriction and requirement
  • · propelling the strategy to stimulate improving the energy efficiency in building sector and industry sector based on restriction policies - reducing energy demand in building sector by implementing in buildings
  • · establishing smart energy system connected with encouraging new energy industry - disseminating xEMS (Energy Management System), promoting introduction of EnMS (Energy Management System), AMI (Advanced Metering lnfmstructura) - promoting connection of profitable projects for Jeju people such as VPP (Virtual Power Plant), DR {Demand Response), and Smart Grid, etc.
  • 1) Energy Efficiency Resource Standard: a system to impose the duty of demand management to energy suppliers
