South Korea power market outlook H1 2016

Report summary

Weak demand from China and the US has led to a slowdown in South Korean economic growth, which is expected to result in a more modest outlook for power demand growth, particularly in the industrial sector. End-use power demand is expected to average 1.4% per year through 2035, less than half the pace of the previous ten years.

The rapidly changing cost environment for hydrocarbon production and renewable energy, combined with energy policy changes, means the fuel mix in energy markets can be unpredictable at best.
