Eco-friendly town generates energy, reduces greenhouse gas emissions

'여름'에 모은 에너지 '겨울'에 쓴다…친환경에너지타운
The government is investing in environment-friendly technology... so that communities can get electricity from renewable sources,... store it... and even sell it.
Already the systems are improving both energy efficiency and residents' livelihoods.
Park Se-young reports.
When it comes to heating bills, this daycare center has nothing to worry about.
It uses electricity generated by solar cells on its roof... and hot water that's heated by solar energy.
The center is part of an eco-friendly energy town in Jincheon County, Chungcheongbuk-do Province.
The town is equipped with multiple solar and fuel cells that generate new and renewable energy, which the residents can use and sell.
It also features a heat storage system that can store energy generated during summer for use in the winter.

(Korean)
"We've introduced a seasonal thermal storage system, which can store energy left over from spring through fall ...for use in the winter. Geothermal heat and heat from the town's sewage treatment plant can be used in case of insufficient solar heat."

The town can generate an annual profit of over 300-thousand U.S. dollars and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 720 tons, …which is equal to the emissions from 360 mid-sized cars.
After observing the town's operational efficiency until 2019, the government plans to establish more eco-friendly energy towns nationwide.
