LG Chem requested the shutdown of energy storage systems (ESS), which use its own batteries, on Jan. 15, according to the Elec. Times.

There have been eight fires in ESSs that use LG Chem's batteries since November last year, and ESSs that use the company's batteries have caught fire on Jan. 14 and 15 in a row.

A fire broke out at 4:16 p.m. on Jan. 15 at the solar energy-linked ESS located in Jangsu-eup, Jangsu-gun, North Jeolla Province. Another fire broke out in the ESS, which was installed at the Kiswire Plant in Yangsan, South Gyeongsang Province in the morning of the previous day.

LG Chem is known to have notified companies of the stoppage of ESS operation after a series of fires. It seems that LG Chem has decided to stop operating ESS after recognizing the seriousness of the situation and to find a solution. 

"We are currently trying to come up with proper measures related to the series of fires," said an LG Chem official.
