The Gyeonggi Green Energy – Fuel Cell System is a 58,800kW energy storage project located in Hwaseong, Gyeonggi, South Korea.
The electro-chemical battery energy storage project uses fuel cells as its storage technology. The project was commissioned in 2013.
The Gyeonggi Green Energy – Fuel Cell System is owned by POSCO Energy (15%), a subsidiary of POSCO, Samchully (15%) and Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power (49%), a subsidiary of Korea Electric Power.
The key application of the project is on-site heat and power generation.
Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power, POSCO Energy and Samchully have delivered the battery energy storage project.
Gyeonggi Green Energy Co. Ltd is the developer & operator of the project. The ultra-clean electricity generated by this fuel cell park will be supplied to the power grid and will assist the partners with compliance under the South Korean Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS). The heat generated by the fuel cell power plants will be supplied to a district heating system for local use.
