At COP 21, participants of the UNFCC reached an agreement for mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions. It is not mandatory, but new policies and technologies are needed for each country to accomplish Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDC). Especially in the power section, Smart Grid, Renewable energy, Battery Energy Storage System (BESS), Distributed Generation and Microgrid are emerged as solutions to reduce GHGs. These technologies are known as the GHGs mitigation Technologies. However, researches are needed to reveal that is true or not. BESS can be operated for diverse purpose. This paper presents the GHGs emissions changes resulting from the unit commitment with BESS that is applied to Korea power system for minimizing end-user’s costs. This study is based on IEEE 39-bus system to reveal the influence of BESS on GHGs. As a result, in a certain condition, the increasing of BESS capacity could result the increasing of GHGs emissions.
