ABSTRACT

It is very effective way to convert existing cites to the Carbon Free Cities in order to reduce the quantity of carbon emission and prepare the global warming threat. Based on this understanding our government established ‘2050 Carbon Neutral Strategy’ in December of 2020 and this strategy is under going. Photovoltaics(PV) is cost-effective system to produce carbon free electricity. And enhancing the quantity of the electricity through the provision of PV systems is very definite method for the construction of Carbon Free City. However, PV system not only requires huge amount of land and space but also many parts of PV system are made of harmful chemical materials it is really hard to say that the PV systems are environment friendly facilities. In case of our nation, PV systems are ruled by various acts such as Building Acts, Electricity Act, and Local Ordinances based on National Land Planning and Utilization Act. But there is no single Act or Legal Code which governs the PV system’s locational conditions and relationship between neighboring regions and etc. In other words, there is no legal standard which enables to consider the location of PV system in planning perspective. Most conflicts over the distance control for the PV system between local authorities and government were caused by the operation of permission of development activity based on National Land Planning and Utilization Act. However, National Land Planning and Utilization Act does not include any regulation for construction of Carbon Free City and distance control for the PV system in planning perspective. For these reasons current National Land Planning and Utilization Act needs to be amended to incorporate those important regulations from ‘Guideline for establishment of Low Carbon Green City’ in order for providing legal basis for considering the location of PV system in planning perspective.
