Abstract

Korea strategically selected PV as one of the major renewable energy technologies and thus rapidly expanded PV program both for R&D and dissemination since 2004. The Korean Government established Korean Photovoltaic Development Organization in 2004 and commissioned it with planning and managing R&D program. The R&D program focuses on manufacturing technologies necessary for reducing the system cost and improving the reliability. Dissemination continued to grow with a strong feed-in tariff program, public building obligatory installation program, and renewable portfolio agreement programs as well as the existing subsidy programs. It is tentatively decided that about 6 MW of PV was installed in 2005, a 140% increase from 2.5 MW in 2004.
