South Korean energy policy at a crossroads

Report summary

South Korean energy policy has been driven by the country's need to fuel its industrial sector with cheap energy. But distorted prices have led to unintended and undesirable consequences, with the country on the verge of a power supply shortfall over the last two years. South Korea's new National Energy Master Plan should prioritise electricity price reform as a key element of its energy security strategy.
