Moon Jae-In election pledges: Idling old coal-fired plants during April and May when fine dust levels tend to peak, and permanently close 10 aged coal-fired plants earlier than scheduled, while reassessing plans to construct nine new plants. Elevate the issue of ultra-fine dust with a view to halving dust levels. Increase the distribution of environmentally-friendly cars at the expense of old diesel vehicles. Scrap plans to build new nuclear plants, including No. 5 and No. 6 Shin-Kori reactors. Close the Wolsong No. 1 nuclear plant with immediate effect. Increase the use of renewable energy to 20% by 2030.
