Energy efficiency through energy-digital convergence based on scientific data is creating new economies and jobs with the realization of ‘carbon neutrality’.

Energy efficiency is critical to solving the climate change problem. The Sustainable Development Scenario of the International Energy Agency (IEA) stresses the potential of energy efficiency to reduce GHG emissions by 40% over the next 20 years. In addition, the Climate Group, which leads the global RE100 initiative, is further maximizing energy efficiency potential through their EP100 (Energy Productivity) program with the goal of doubling energy productivity by 2030. It currently has more than 120 businesses that are part of its supply chain

The Republic of Korea is further strengthening its efforts to address the climate crisis. This year, South Korea becomes the 14th country to make its 2050 carbon neutrality implementation into law. The government also pledged to adopt digital platforms and the use of scientific data as bases to improve the means of evaluating the needs of the people, taking the necessary actions in advance, and providing fair and equal services to people. It is now the time to converge standalone and fragmented data and systems to optimize outcomes of the green new deals and carbon neutrality, as well as to reinforce engagement with the stakeholders. The integration of climate-energy and digital technology is pivotal in the transition toward achieving global climate goals in order to have sustainable economic growth and in building stronger social networks for more responsive actions.
