Jeju Global Research Center of Korea Institute of Energy Research
The Korea Institute of Energy Recearch(KIER) conducts research in the field of energy technology, such as researching efficient energy usage, sustainable and environmentally friendly energy production, clean energy, etc. In order to actively deal with the universally shared concerns of global warming and climate change.
In particular, the Jeju Global Research Center began in 1995 with the establishment of a small on-shore wind power performance text and evaluation station in the Wollyenong area. In 2005, the JGRC established and managed a station in the Woljeung area for testing and evaluating medium and large scale wind power performance, in addition to demonstrating on-shore new and renewable energy. And as of 2011, the JGRC's mandate expanded to include technological development for the convergence of on/off-shore new and renewable energy and the construction of an integrated demonstration station in the Kimnyeong area.

Manjanggul Cave (UNESCO World Heritage)
Manjanggul Cave is one of the finest lava tunnels in the world, and is a designated natural monument. A lava tunnel is formed when the lava that was deep in the ground spouts from the peak and flows to the surface. Manjanggul Cave has a variety of interesting structures inside including 70cm lava stalagmites and the lava tube tunnels.
Only 1km of the 13,422m Manjanggul Cave is open to tourists. The inside of the tunnel sustains a temperature of 11~21°C, creating a comfortable atmosphere. There are rare animals such as bats living in the tunnel, which makes this tunnel valuable for researchers as well. The stone pillars and stalactites are widely spread and the tunnels shows off the cave's topographical features. "Stone Turtle" is especially eye-catching because it is shaped like Jeju Island.
