KT's smart energy project was highlighted by the Harvard Business School (HBS)’s case study. In addition, the international organization for the U.N. has released the KT-led ICT-based report to prevent spread of infectious disease.
KT Chairman Hwang Chang-kyu gave a special lecture to HBS graduate students at Harvard Business School in Cambridge, Massachusetts on Oct. 26 (local time). The lecture commemorates the registration of the “KT Corporation in the New Energy Market” as an HBS case.
HBS focused on KT's smart energy project focusing on efficiency of existing energy as well as new renewable energy production to respond to climate change. It praised the KT’s efforts to solve environmental problems by streamlining supply and demand.
KT's smart energy project was covered as a case of the “21st Century Energy,” which is the second year subject of HBS's master's degree.
In a class held at Hawes Hall on Oct. 26, Chairman Hwang explained in depth the KT smart energy project to 60 students as the main character of the case study. He also had a question and answer session with the students.
Hwang has given nine lectures at Harvard since 2005. In September 2016, he gave a special lecture in front of 800 students on the topic of "Power of Network" at Harvard's Memorial Hall.
