April 16, 2019

Nuclear energy expert, geoscientist and Jackson School Lecturer Scott Montgomery was recently quoted in a CNBC article on North Korea evading sanctions but relying on alternative energy sources to keep the economy afloat.

Some of these energy sources include wind and tidal power and transforming coal into liquid synthetic fuels. Montgomery says in order for North Korean engineers to develop this capability they have travelled to China and Russia for training.

“There is a new focus on increasing the amount of power in North Korea,” he said.
