        Policy description The 4th Basic plan for NRE clarifies the details fo the 2nd Energy Master Plan

        A new and renewables target of 5.0% in the primary energy supply by 2020 and 11% by 2035. The generation target is to achieve 13.4% of total power generation with NRE sources by 2035, with a focus on solar and wind energy, while scaling down waste energy.


        - 11% new and renewable target of total TPES by 2035

         'new energy' includes hydrogen, fuelcell, coal to liquid (CTL), and coal to gas (IGCC).
         'renewable energy' includes solar, wind, hydro, ocean(tide), geothermal, bioenergy, and waste 

        - 13.4 % renewable electricity share by 2035
