RenewableUK, the trade and professional body representing the wind, wave and tidal energy industries, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Korean Wind Energy Association.

The two associations committed to an agreement to work together to increase trade by “pursuing mutually beneficial business opportunities”.
