Diverse energy resources tapped

According to information available, proactive efforts are being made to exploit a variety of energy resources across the country.

The solar power generation system is positively being introduced in Pyongyang. The system-parallel solar power generation system has been established in dozens of units in the city including the Ryuwon Footwear Factory, Taesongsan Spring Water Factory and Ponghak Primary School in Phyongchon District, while the independent solar power generation system has been set up in thousands of units, with the result that more generating capacity based on solar energy has been built there.

In South Hwanghae Province such units as the provincial posts and telecommunications management bureau, the provincial informatization management bureau, the Haeju Chemical Factory and Haeju Jo Ok Hui Teachers Training College installed solar panels at windows and roofs to generate electricity needed for production, business activities, scientific research and education.

Unchon and Unnyul counties also fixed hundreds of wind-driven generators at institutions, industrial establishments and households to produce a great deal of electricity.

South Phyongan Province is channelling big efforts into generating power based on coal gasification in line with the specific features of the local area which abounds in coal. A dozen locally-run plants in Sunchon City have set up such power generation system to produce consumer goods.

The same is the case with Phyongsong, Phyongwon County and several other cities and counties in the province.

North Hwanghae Province is pushing projects for increasing electricity output by relying on solar energy and biomass.
