ESS is a system that improves energy efficiency by storing the excess of energy generated during the daytime and supplying it when power is in short supply. Currently, there is a growing demand for ESS because renewable energy sources face a series of problems associated with an unreliable power generation and supply that negatively affects the reliability and credibility of the entire power grid.
The market is expected to be formed and divided into several sections, including the automotive power supply market, the new and renewable energy market, and the arbitrage market.
Improve power quality by minimizing the output fluctuations of PV power plants arising from the fluctuating levels of sunshine and a dependence on the daytime or nighttime.
Address power capacity shortage issues and ensure the economic feasibility of the distribution grid by storing an excess of power during the daytime and transmitting it during the time windows when power demand is high.
Implements a system that can utilize real-time monitor batteries in operation and take the measures against any abnormalities through remote control.

|Division||REC Weight factor||Subject energy sources and standards|
|PV power||1.2||When installed at general-purpose sites||Less than 100kw|
|1.0||100kw or higher|
|1.5||Over 3,000kw||3,000kw or lower|
|1.5||When installed in a floating state on the water surface|
|1.5||When power trading occurs using private power generation units|
|PV+ESS||5.0||ESS facilities (connected to PV)||16,17|
※The payback period for PV systems is about nine years. / The payback period for PV+ESS systems is seven years (shorten by two years).
