SOUTH KOREA SOLAR & STORAGE MARKET
South Korea to raise renewables target to 129 GW by 2040. Under the South Korean government’s new strategy, renewables would cover up to 35% of total power demand by 2040, the government sees the potential to deploy up to 235 GW of solar and wind. At the end of 2018, the country’s cumulative installed PV capacity stood at around 7.86 GW, according to statistics from IREA. The South Korean government released a basic plan for electricity supply and demand that called for 58.5 GW of renewables by 2030, including up to 30 GW of solar.
South Korean energy storage adoption motivated by incentive programs and national schemes. The energy storage business is emerging as a “blue ocean in South Korea”. This is because as the Korean government is strongly moving forward with energy conversion policies to expand the proportion of new and renewable energy such as solar power and wind power generation, ESS holds the key to raising the efficiency of these unstable renewable energy sources.
White Paper – Solar Energy in South Korea
In this report, it is aimed to provide an overview of South Korean solar situation, as well as its energy background, solar manufacturing chain, solar projects and Korean particular policies on renewables and solar.
Energy storage is regarded to enhance system ﬂexibility and enable system balancing, as well as de-risking assets. Nowadays, energy storage play a central role in the transition and transformation of the power sector.
