The Forum will provide a framework to discuss technical and political aspects of energy and environmental policies, wind energy, photovoltaic, utilization of biomass and green cars. Numerous Korean companies and government agencies have expressed their interest in this Forum. Global Korean companies such as Hyundai, Samsung and POSCO as well as small and medium-sized companies will attend the Forum.
The Industry Forum of the EKC2012 will bring together a large number of industries and organizations involved in the Korean renewable energy sector. European participants will have the opportunity to meet and network with key players in this increasingly important sector of the Korean economy. The fast growing Korean market can serve also as a gateway for European companies to other Asian markets. The Industry Forum will be a valuable event for companies wanting to venture in to this growing sector.
This Forum is attended by
- Wind turbine manufacturers, manufacturers of photovoltaic installations, component suppliers, biomass utilization companies
- Companies engaged in the operation, maintenance and repair of renewable energy installations, electronic power corporations Companies dealing with consulting, project development, construction, financing and insurance of facilities in this sector
- Marine companies, transport & logistics companies
- Government agencies, universities, research institutions

Renewable Energy : Wind Energy
Wind energy is a promising industry and a fast-developing
market in Korea. The Korean government has started the
development of an offshore wind farm which will produce 2,500
MW by 2019. About 7 billion Euros will be invested. Electric
power companies, turbine manufacturers, numerous component
suppliers, and R&D institutions will coorperate in this complex
project. The participation of the world leading Korean
ship-building industry will also help to realize the installation of
the offshore wind farm.
The Korean wind energy industry is relatively unknown to German and other European wind energy industries. Participation at the forum will be a rare oppotunity to gain an insight on the current status of the Korean Wind energy insdustry and its future projects. This may open new possiblities for cooperation in Korea and Asia.
Renewable Energy : Photovoltaic
The global PV market has seen impressive growth rates in cell/module production during the past decade. The EU is the largest PV market in the world, and Korea is emerging as one of the promising PV markets of the future. The types of PV systems used in the EU and Korea differ, however, along with other details, such as subsidies, cost factors, and demand for special applications. The long term experience of the German PV industry offers sophisticated, high quality products for all application areas. Cooperation with competitive Korean PV industries - based on the strong semiconductor technology in Korea - will give excellent opportunities for German and Korean industries to enlarge their PV business in the EU and Korea. This session covers key issues of EU and South Korean policies pertaining to PV business, as well as PV development activities and market trends.
Renewable Energy : Biomass
Korea encourages green growth and bioenergy market is expected to grow in the future. Even though the implementation of bioenergy, especially biofuel, posed adverse problems regarding food shortage and environmental degradation in recent years, bioenergy is expected to play a crucial role in replacing fossil fuels from transport and generating regional heat and electricity due to the advantage of its readiness and cost-effectiveness. EKC 2012 biomass forum deal with various energy conversion technologies from biomass to energy i.e. heat, electricity and its economic potential. The participating institute and companies will acquire the state-of-art knowledge and the networking in biomass sector between EU and Korea.
