Researches of the Renewable Energy Research Institute under the State Academy of Sciences are vigorously conducting scientific research to further consolidathe the independence of the national economy and improve the people’s living standards and making many achievements.

In recent years alone, they developed a variety of products by applying renewable energy, including various wind-driven generators and solar modules and installed them at the Kumsanpho Fishery Station, Ryuwon Footwear Factory and Pyongyang Cosmetisc Factory.

They also developed and manufactured water-wheel pump urgently needed in the agricultural sector and people’s livelihood. As it uses no electric power and fuel, but utilizes flowing water to pump up water to the designated spot, the pump is highly commented upon for being cost-effective as well as favourable for environmental conservation.

The oxyhydrogen gas generator developed at the institute resolves water and produces the mixed gas of oxygen and hydrogen to be used as fuel.

The institute has built solar module production base equipped with such processes as cutting of wafers, sealing, assembling and testing to mass-produce various sizes of solar modules.

Many other successes achieved at the institute, including electrostatic water treatment equipment, solar water heater, 250 kW wind-driven generator, submersible pump and equipment for treating magnetized materials, are rendering an active contribution to the economic development of the country and the improvement of the people’s living standards.
