Representatives of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and the Greenhouse Gas Inventory and Research Center of Korea (GIR) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to explore potential areas of collaboration. For Berkeley Lab, the MOU is centered in its Environmental Energy Technologies Division (EETD). The areas of potential cooperation include energy sector planning, policy analysis, energy modeling.
GIR and Berkeley Lab will explore expanding their existing collaborations in energy sector assessment for energy efficiency, renewable energy, and green technology deployment, policy analysis, and energy modeling for greenhouse gas emissions abatement. The two organizations also have a mutual interest in studying energy consumption behavior and technology adoption in developing countries.
