Nuclear energy expert, geoscientist and Jackson School Lecturer Scott Montgomery features on North Korea’s efforts to evade sanctions but keep North Korea afloat with alternative energy sources.

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.
