Dear AFORE 2023 participants, 

As the President of the Korean Society for New and Renewable Energy (KSNRE), I am honored to extend a warm welcome to all of you at the 12th Asia-Pacific Forum on Renewable Energy (AFORE 2023). It gives me immense pleasure to host this prestigious conference at RAMADA PLAZA JEJU, Republic of Korea, from 7th to 11th November 2023.

Our goal for AFORE 2023 is to create an exceptional academic conference that focuses on the crucial theme of renewable energy as the key to achieving carbon neutrality by 2050. Carbon neutrality has emerged as the new international order, and the role of sustainable green technologies and industries has never been more critical.

In today's corporate landscape, Environment-Social-Governance management and the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism are evolving into essential management obligations. Furthermore, the rapidly expanding global renewable energy market presents new opportunities and emphasizes the urgency of academic and technological advancements in the field of renewable energy.

As we navigate this epochal transition to carbon neutrality, the significance of renewable energy cannot be overstated. It is the experts from academia, industry, and government who will lead the charge in driving the energy transition forward.

Located on the picturesque island of Jeju in Korea, AFORE 2023 is thoughtfully designed to address the pathways to carbon neutrality, taking into account the post-COVID perspective. We understand that tackling this complex challenge requires international collaboration and cooperation. To facilitate meaningful discussions and forge impactful connections, we have arranged for engagement with esteemed international organizations like the IEA, IRENA, and GGGI.

AFORE 2023 stands as a representation of the Asia-Pacific community's commitment to renewable energy. It is with great enthusiasm that I invite and encourage your active participation in this conference. Together, we can collectively shape the future of renewable energy and drive our world closer to a sustainable and carbon-neutral future.

Thank you, and I am looking forward to sharing a memorable and productive conference with all of you.

Dear AFORE 2023 participants, 

On behalf of the Organization Committee, I would like to welcome you to the 12th Asia Pacific Renewable Energy Forum (AFORE 2023) on the beautiful Jeju Island, South Korea.

The theme of this conference is to share and discuss the latest research on "Pathways to Carbon Neutrality by 2050".

It is absolutely clear that renewable energy is a key means of achieving carbon neutrality.

However, the transition to a Green Hydrogen-based energy economy powered by renewable energy faces critical obstacles that are extremely difficult to overcome.

To break the technical, social and geopolitical barriers and to promote the new energy economy by ensuring economic viability, all experts from industry, academia and institutes in all fields of new and renewable energy need to share their visions, knowledge and ideas.

On the other hand, individual technologies alone such as PV, wind, ESS and carbon capture cannot overcome the strong barriers to carbon neutrality.

That's why sector coupling is inevitable together with digital energy, the software power to implement sector coupling.

In this regard, AFORE 2023 is very timely and is expected to provide opportunities for first-class technical information exchange and professional networking.

In addition, it is my hope that this event will be an opportunity for specialist coupling between experts from industry, academia and institutes. Once again, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all those who helped me in the preparation and to all the participants from home and abroad to make this forum a great success, and I hope you will bring back good memories from Jeju Island, South Korea
