Public-private Joint Energy Welfare Project
Relatated Sustainable Development Goals:
The energy welfare project was implemented by providing various types of direct and indirect support for low-income households. The characteristics of local societies, participating companies and recipients were taken into consideration.
The total budget size was approximately KRW 5.5 billion (January 2015 ~ December 2016) and was used in the following ways: approximately KRW 600 million was used for beneficial energy-sharing corporate activities and the Citizen Energy Welfare Fund, approximately KRW 2.2 billion for the Repairs of Hope project (KRW 1.2 billion in 2015, KRW 1 billion in 2016), and approximately KRW 2.7 billion for cultivating/selecting energy planners and energy welfare workers (KRW 15.75 million in 2015, KRW 11.55 million in 2016). The budget was secured through agreements between the SMG and private sector entities (participation in beneficial energy-sharing corporate activities, Citizen Energy Welfare Fund, monetary donations).
