In this episode of Energy Insights we speak with Joojin Kim. Joojin is the founder and CEO of Solutions for Our Climate based in Seoul, South Korea.
Prior to founding Solutions for Our Climate, Joojin’s background was in law where he worked on several energy-related projects as a lawyer for South Korea’s largest law firm Kim and Chang. Joojin has also been on the expert committee for the National Council on Climate and Air Quality that was convened by the President of South Korea and headed by former UN secretary-general Ban Ki-moon. Joojin holds a Bachelors in international relations and a masters degree in environmental studies from Seoul National University and a degree in environmental law from Georgetown University.

In today’s conversation we focus mainly on South Korea’s 10th basic energy plan and the implications that has on the countries energy mix in the future. Other topics include why Korea’s renewable energy progress has been so slow, the risks of Korea’s reliance on gas as a major energy source, and the corporate and international pressure to change the countries renewable energy landscape and other topics.
