Three energy firms are to combine resources to develop a 10MW lithium-ion energy storage demonstration project in India.
The project involves Japanese firm Mitsubishi Corporation, US firm AES Corporation and Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited (TPDDL)— a joint venture between Indian utility company Tata Power and the Government of NCT of Delhi.
The project will use AES’s Advancion energy storage technology developed by AES Energy Storage.
Under the partnership, Mitsubishi and AES will establish the ESS at TPDDL’s facilities to serve the grid sectors operated by TPDDL in Northern and Northwestern Delhi.
The ESS aims to stabilise the grid network, which delivers power to over seven million customers across the region.
The project aims to stop electricity black-outs while harnessing renewable energy such as wind and solar.
