Summing‐up
1. Korea has been disseminating PV through regulatory support, promotion  policy, subsidy, and infrastructure establishment. 2. Korea has been boosting PV industrial competence combined with  technological advancement and active investment. 3 Korea has been accumulating expertise of PV installation in domestic and 3. Korea has been accumulating expertise of PV installation in domestic and  overseas sites with a wide range of experience from residential  installation to large‐scaled utilities.

Thank you ! Solar Korea

Attributes as above could ensure the contribution of Korea to ADB’s ASEI project.
