The government says it plans to increase the supply of thermal energy by building more coal and liquefied natural gas-fueled thermal power stations.

The Ministry of Knowledge Economy selected thermal power providers that will be included in the ministry’s sixth basic power supply plan to generate 15-point-eight million kilowatts more thermal energy by 2020.

The ministry notified the selected thermal power suppliers of the results of its evaluations and is now collecting their opinions.

The government said that it will decide whether to construct more nuclear power plants later after gathering public opinion. It noted the people's concerns about the safety of nuclear energy have not been dispelled and the launch of a new government is just a month away.

The new liquefied natural gas powered plants will crank out five-point-06 kilowatts of energy, while the new coal-fired plants produce ten-point-74 million kilowatts.
