Korea - Opportunities for Enhanced Geothremal Systems

The map indicates several areas in Korea that could be probable for enhanced geothermal systems (EGS). It contains layers that show the temperature distribution at depths (1 – 5km) across Korea. The layers are a result of a study conducted in 2010 by Yoonho Song et al., of the Korean Institute for Geosciences and Mineral Resources.

Tidal Energy Technology Brief: Chapter (III. Costs and Performance)

III. Costs and Performance Tidal range energy has already been commercially applied since the late 1960s in Canada, China and France, and most recently in South Korea. With regard to the tidal range, the upfront costs associated with installation are high, however, they hold good pay-back properties over the longer term. Many of the instal- lations from the 1960s and 1970s are still operational without many problems. There is, however, little economic data available. This is partly due to the ...

Tidal Energy Technology Brief: Chapter (Cost indications)

Highlights » Process and Technology Status – There are three categories of tidal energy technologies. The first category, tidal range technologies use a barrage – a dam or other barrier – to harvest power from the height dif- ference between high and low tide. The power is generated through tidal turbines (most of them come from hydropower design, such as bulb turbines) located in the barrage, and their commercial feasibility has been well established through the operation of plants in France ...
