Report summary

South Korea continues to struggle with a tight power reserve margin as a result of delays to new baseload nuclear and coal capacity as well as stronger than expected electricity demand growth. While public support for nuclear power has weakened in the wake of Fukushima, nuclear power build is still expected to be strong, accounting for roughly 30% of total power generation by 2035
