Finally, generation is overwhelmingly concentrated in two fuel sources—oil and coal—making energy diversification a major priority.

On April 22, 2015, the United States and the Republic of Korea (ROK, also known as South Korea) signed a new bilateral civilian nuclear agreement known as a 123 Agreement, a prerequisite for cooperation and trade in nuclear technologies and resources, after previously being unable to reach an agreement in 2014.

With the new agreement, the United States has opened, however slightly, the door to allowing South Korea to expand its nuclear operations, with implications for future nonproliferation efforts.

this would equate to a significant boost to the country’s GDP.

However, in the wake of the Fukushima disaster, the renaissance has been largely stalled globally and these figures may be optimistic.

Still, nuclear servicing remains critical to the daily operations of nuclear power plants.

The Korean Ministry of Knowledge Economy’s stated objective is to provide operational and maintenance services for nuclear facilities on the international market of roughly billion.

It has been argued by representatives of South Korea that to advance the country’s energy security and commercial interests, enrichment and reprocessing (ENR) of nuclear material is critical.

This has been a consistent sticking point between the United States and South Korea.

Further, South Korea has argued that it lacks space and the appropriate geological conditions within its territory to safely store spent nuclear material long-term, raising the desire for alternative means to address long-term waste issues.

The term “123 Agreement” references Section 123 of the U. 1954 Atomic Energy Act, which requires a specific agreement between the United States and another country in order for nuclear material, equipment, components, or technology to be transferred.

At the peak of the “nuclear renaissance,” from 2009 to 2010, South Korea had high aspirations for expanding its market share in nuclear energy services.
