A South Korean advisory group has called for the government to increase the share of renewable energy in its power mix to 40% by 2040 to combat climate change and lower the coutnry’s dependence on imported fuels, according to Reuters.

South Korea’s power supply plan through 2030 calls for renewable energy to contribute 20% of the country’s electricity.

The Ministry of Trade, Industry and Economy is expected to release a long-term energy plan this year for the period from 2019-2040.
