Moreover, the government has had to undertakestrong action to combat the new wave of scandals which threaten to further weaken the public's trust inSouth Korea's nuclear power plants. Although we expect the country to power ahead with its capacitybuildingplans, the latest proposal to levy a carbon tax on electricity energy is likely to impact theattractiveness of the industry for private producers.We forecast overall power generation in South Korea to grow at an average of 4.3% per annum between2013 and 2022, reaching 767.1TWh. While coal- and gas-fired generation continue to play a vital role, weexpect most of the growth to come from nuclear generation, which we expect will lead growth in generationin the second half of our 10-year forecast period to 2022, despite the current high level of public distrust.
