Report summary

Key takeaways Regardless of results, South Korea's election on 9 May will see a new government focused on reforming the electricity sector. Presidential favourite Moon Jae-in's reform agenda includes more support for renewables, closing of coal plants, shutting nuclear facilities, and even importing Russian piped gas through North Korea. LNG could be a big winner as an interim measure to reduce pollution and address nuclear safety concerns.
