Professor John Byrne works in the field of energy and climate change to expand the prospects and insights of the changing energy industry since the Paris Climate Convention at the University of Delaware. In a speech on the day, he said, "Many people think that nuclear power plants are inexpensive and power generation efficient. It's never cheaper than renewable energy. In the future, energy policy will mature through citizen-led energy democracy."
The business-related R&D manpower training project is organized by the Ministry of Industry and Commerce and the Korea Industrial Technology Development Organization.
It is designed to build a new industry-university cooperation system through joint R&D and human resources training between companies and universities. Currently, SeoulTech’s Graduate School of Energy and Environment is participating as a "Human Resource Development Consortium to customize the commercialization of the bio-energy development business". The project is scheduled to be completed in 2020.
