The Korea Energy Agency will hold the third South-South Knowledge Exchange Program at Seoul Royal Hotel from June 17 to 21 by inviting officials from South Asian countries.

The program, sponsored by the World Bank, is held to introduce Korean energy efficiency policies and success stories to developing countries. Under a contract with the World Bank, the KEA holds three education sessions for Asian countries. Sri Lanka and Bangladesh participate in the third program.

The theme of the program is an energy efficiency system for buildings. Participants will learn about Korea's Green Building Support Act and Building Energy Management System (BEMS). They will also study Korea's green remodeling projects and best practices of energy service companies (ESCO). Participants will experience Korea's energy efficiency technologies by visiting the New Seoul Metropolitan Government Building, Smart City PR Center (LH), Hyundai Motor's Ulsan plant, LG Magok Science Park, and the Korea Energy Agency and other places.

High-ranking government officials from the two countries will take part in the program, including the chief financial officer of the Sri Lankan Ministry of Electric Power and Energy. Energy efficiency experts in Korea's public and private sectors will share their experience in energy efficiency policies and technologies.
