Soocheol Lee takes a close look at the cases of East Asia especially in Japan and South Korea in “Energy systems and low-carbon policies in East Asia.” Given that East Asian nations face different energy and carbon policies, institutional infrastructure-building, which is instrumental in developing a low-carbon society in the East Asia region, has been moving forward in recent years.
