India’s adoption of battery energy storage took a leap forward this week with a joint venture set to install the country’s first lithium-ion large-scale project.
Panasonic India Pvt. Ltd. and US-based energy provider AES India Private Limited are set to construct a 10MW energy storage array at Panasonic’s Techno park manufacturing facility in Jhajjar, Haryana.
The project brings together Panasonic’s lithium-ion battery supply with AES Energy Storage’s Advancion® platform.
The system will provide back-up to the manufacturing facility by stabalising the grid’s renewable energy input in the region.
The project will include 1MWh of energy storage alongside 2MW of grid-connected solar and 0.5MW of wind energy at the hybrid development at Rangreek, India.
The joint venture follows the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) inviting expressions of interest for the project in March. More here
India’s adoption of energy storage includes Swiss multinational corporation ABB signing a memorandum of understanding with Indian Institute of Technology – Madras (IIT-M) to research and develop micro-grids earlier this month.
