KEPCO Cuts Deal on Energy Conservation & GHG Emission Reduction with K-eco
KEPCO struck an MOU on energy conservation and conducting joint activities to reduce greenhouse gas emissions with Korea Environment Corp. (K-eco) at KEPCO’s Gyeongin construction headquarters on Jan. 8.
Under the deal, KEPCO and K-eco agreed to proactively cope with a climate change crisis by conserving energies in non-industry sectors such as household and commercial facilities, inducing greenhouse gas emission reductions and improving consumers’ awareness toward values of electricity.
The takeaways of the agreement include joint publicities designed to induce public behavior changes toward energy conservation in non-industry sectors; selecting and awarding excellent entries in public contests for energy conservation; mutual cooperation to boost a carbon point system for raising energy efficiency; and strengthening connectivity of a system of monitoring electricity consumption amounts of carbon point system beneficiaries and cooperation in upgrade.
A carbon point system is a public greenhouse gas emission reduction program in which volunteers at households and commercial facilities are offered incentives such as cash in return of greenhouse gas emission reduction outcomes through conserving electricity, gas and tap water.
About 1.9 million households in 16 cities and provinces, except Seoul, are participating in the carbon point system project, being implemented by K-eco.
