Strenuous efforts are made to harness natural energy in the DPRK, regarding it as an important policy task and a way of propelling the development of units.

Under a long-range programme, Pyongyang Municipality is pushing forward with the establishment of a photovoltaic power generation system by making effective use of high sunshine and many high-rise apartment buildings.

The Sci-Tech Complex installed thousands of solar panels on its roof and along the Taedong riverside to form a solar power station and produce electric power needed for lighting, thousands of computers, network facilities and communication equipment.

It also runs a geothermal air conditioning system.

Many institutions and enterprises, including the Grand People's Study House, and families produce electric power for production, management and living with solar panels.

North Hwanghae Province has achieved many successes by directing efforts to producing electric power with solar energy and biomass, while South Hwanghae Province widely introduces technologies for power generation by harnessing wind power.

Jagang Province manufactured and installed small and profitable hydro-power generators and operates them on a normal basis.

The national power generation capacity based on natural energy is on the steady increase.
