The 21st century is apparently an era of information, knowledge, culture, and technology, and these values are changing surprisingly rapidly at this very moment. The same is true when it comes to the energy industry such as electricity. While the importance of baseload power generation, such as coal and nuclear power, is gradually declining, the value and potential of renewable energy such as solar and wind power are increasing. In addition, the manufacturing industry is also entering into a completely new aspect in line with the Fourth Industrial Revolution. New technologies such as artificial intelligence, big data, robots, and electric vehicles are converging with existing manufacturing industries to create new markets. The boundaries between the telecommunications, home appliances, and construction sectors and the energy industry are also gradually breaking down.
The Electimes is still striving to convey the correct message of electricity and energy to its readers amid the floods of media and information and to provide policy implications. Since January 2018, the Electimes has been reorganized into a daily newspaper published three times a week, away from the speciality magazine published twice a week. In July, it also joined the Internet Newspaper Association to secure its position as an Internet media. The Electimes is about to make a second leap forward this year to mark the 58th anniversary of its foundation. We will keep on publishing articles that accurately point out the flow of domestic and foreign industries, commentary on solutions to various regulations and problems that hinder industrial development.
