South Korea is one of the most developed countries in Asia and is the eighth largest electricity consumer in the world. It has been making strong efforts to increase the renewable energy portion of its energy mix. The country is backed with a strong manufacturing industry (solar PV) as well as supportive policies.
Solar field is the core in this policy with the long-term goal of the government to cover 20% of the electricity production by renewable energy sources such as solar and wind power by the year of 2030. 63% of the plan is covered by solar power, which is expected to have a great riffle effect on the industry.
And, what’s in store for storage? South Korea will create 440 billion won (US$390 million) worth of new demand for energy storage systems (ESS) by 2020, according to the South Korean government.
