A Rechargeable Energy Storage System or RESS is a system that stores energy for delivery of power and which is rechargeable.[1]

Production storage systems use electric rechargeable traction batteries, electric double-layer capacitors or flywheel energy storage.

This term of art is used in US legislation related to hybrid vehicles (such as the U.S. Energy Policy Act of 2003 and the Heavy Duty Hybrid Vehicle Research, Development, and Demonstration Act of 2009), and also in ISO international standards covering electric vehicles.
