Energy Industry Policies / The problems of the current energy industries and their solutions


SDGs Group 3: Energy, Job and economic development (에너지, 일자리와 경제 성장)

It is hard to imagine a world without energy. People use energy for various reasons such as residential, commercial, transportation, and industrial purposes. However, the current energy is mostly fuel-based, and it is a question whether this energy production is sustainable or not. Therefore, it is important to find a new efficient energy source that is sustainable and solves the problems of the current energy production. In this essay, there are 5 major energy industries being focused and each of their problems are explained. The researchers have investigated and proposed sustainable novel policies in those 5 energy industries so that those industries could overcome their contemporary limits not only locally, but also internationally. This essay is executed under qualitative research, a research method that focuses on obtaining data through open-ended and conversational communication. To be more specific, this particular literature is based on two qualitative research methods: case study research and record keeping. The bottom line of this essay is that in order to acquire a more reliable and sustainable energy source that is eco-friendly and economically beneficial, the government should invest more in the policies suggested in this essay and undergo negotiations with other countries. A more specific and detailed elaboration of these policies is explained along with the essay.

    Thank you for the presentation! I just have some quick questions for your team. Since hydrogen energy is more expensive and energy inefficient compared to nuclear gas, how can hydrogen energy sustain most of the population if it replaces nuclear energy? Also, are there specific ways to educate the public regarding the positive effects and economic efficiency of electric vehicles such as advertising?

      Hi! This is team 동나희찬. Thanks a lot for watching our presentation and the paper. We are really glad to answer the question that you have commented on. If technological development accelerates and costs fall at each stage, such as production, distribution, and utilization, hydrogen can be distributed in large quantities. Currently, the hydrogen sales price is about 8~9,000 won/kg. According to the current Korean government, they are aiming to lower the price of hydrogen to 4,000 won/kg in 2030 and 3,000 won/kg in 2040. Also, concerning the specific ways to educate the public regarding the positive influence and economic efficiency of electric vehicles, an experiment cooperated with a ministry of environment and ministry or economy and finance can give a great impact on the public’s view towards electric vehicles. They can create programs that allow people to test and examine electric vehicles through the real experience of driving. Anyone who is willing to drive electric vehicles can take a chance to drive those without any charge. Additionally, after they provide free ride events in certain indoor places, they can compare the cleanness of the atmosphere between that place and another place where the normal cars were driven. Lastly, they can show the result of the fee spent on driving which is cheaper than the charge of driving a normal car. This experiment will put a great positive impact since a wide range of age groups who have experienced this event for few months will focus and be interested in the positive result.

    Hello! We are Hyunji Jung and Yewon Chang from Seoul Global High School. We found your presentation very interesting and we enjoyed reading it! We have a few questions.

    1. You mentioned increasing the number of workers involved in production defect investigations as a solution to increase the safety of electric vehicles. However, it is our belief that it is the quality of workers that matters during R&D processes, not the quantity of workers, since the work requries advanced knowledge in that field. Could you share your thoughts on this?
    We were also wondering if this solution is realistic in terms of applying it as a policy. Do governments have a right to directly control firms’ internal decisions such as the number of workers?

    2. You also mentioned teaching the benefits of using electric cars to consumers and giving people economic benefits as a solution to increase consumption. However, although incentives range from tax credits or rebates to fleet acquisition goals, there was no noticable increase in electric vehicle expenditures. Could you share your thoughts on this?

    3. Do you think it is appropriate to displace the natives by providing the incentives you mentioned? We thought that they may not want to experience the modern society, and they have the right to continue living in their original habitats.

    4. Is it right for governments to encourage the use of natural gas when it clearly has environmental downsides (non-renewable, greenhouse gas emissions, etc.) compared to other renewable energy options? Why not encourage making more windmills or solar panels?

    Thank you for your presentation. In your video, it states that todays current industry relies strongly on fuel based energy sources. However, in my opinion, we currently do not have an extremely efficient source of energy that is also good for the environment. My question to you is if we supposedly switch to renewable energy, will it be enough to sustain us globally?

    Hello, thank you for the presentation. I’m Steven from Nepean high school. This could be too detailed but, I have some quick questions about electric cars. Can you please elaborate more about the solutions that governments are making for electric cars? Such as the safety guidelines, consumers notification, etc. Also, is there any other problem about electric cars rather than the three you’ve talked about?

    Hello,We are keonguk student council team2.
    Thank you for your wonderful presentation.I have. One thing to wonder. As you mentioned,the biomas system was introduced into a hotel. Has the demerit of inefficiency been solved and has been used even now?
    Thank you.

    안녕하세요 ‘동나희찬’ 여러분, 저는 Today And Tomorrow(TAT)팀의 김서휘입니다.
    요즘에 자원이 부족한 시대에 이런 발표를 듣다보니 더 의미있게 본거같습니다. 하지만 발표가 끝난 뒤 궁금한 점들이 몇가지가 생겼습니다.
    Fuel-based energy를 사용하는 대신에 renewable energy를 사용할수 있닥 하셨는데, 혹시 실제로 renewable energy를 사용했을때 많은 무시하지 못할 단점들도 생길것같습니다. 그런 단점들이 무엇이 있을지와 어떻게 해결 할수있을지가 궁금합니다.

    Hello, this is TAT team from group1.
    For now, hydrogen-powered cars have an image that seems unfamiliar and expensive to people, and I wonder if your opinion will help the eco-friendly image approach people in a friendly way. If hydrogen cars are sold, what other areas can be used for marketing besides eco-friendly ones?
