KIER 에너지기술로 미래의 행복사회를 열어갑니다.
The UN conventions on climate change were adopted in December 2015 for responding to climate change effects, such as unusual temperatures, sea-level rises and ecosystem changes, due to the increase of greenhouse gas emissions.
Korea, ranked the seventh highest in the world for greenhouse gas emissions in 2010, has actively participated in this agreement. However, we have heavily depended on thermal power generation, which emits a significant amount of greenhouse gases. Accordingly, innovative technology development for improving its efficiency and reducing greenhouse gas emissions is essential.
To face the tough challenge of the country, the Future Energy Plant (FEP) Convergence Research Center of Korea Institute of Energy Research (KIER) was established on December 1, 2015, as part of the future initiative convergence R&D project of the National Research Council of Science & Technology (NST).
Fifty researchers from KIER and other associated institutions (Korea Institute of Industrial Technology (KITECH), Korea Research Institute of Standards and Science (KRISS), Korea Institute of Machinery and Materials (KIMM)) are currently conducting on-site R&D on KIER campus, and four universities and five enterprises have also joined with the aims of improving generation efficiency through oxy-fuel combustion technology and solving global warming through water recovery and reusing technology, etc.
