Risks and opportunities


KEPCO receives a trend score of -. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely decrease. KEPCO aims to reduce its generation emissions, increase its renewable capacity to 6 GW by 2030s, and has a net-zero commitment – contradicted by its continued reliance on fossil fuels. KEPCO’s Basic Energy Plan considers nuclear power, hydropower, LNG-fired and coal-fired thermal power as best positioned to provide its base supply load and operation stability. Without the introduction of a coal phase-out date or commitment to use CCUS, KEPCO’s trend is unlikely to improve.
