Technical Study Tour: IGEF organises visit to India’s first grid-scale 10MWH battery energy storage project


On the occasion of the International Conference on Energy Storage (including Pumped Storage), the Indo-German Energy Forum (IGEF) Support Office organised a technical study tour to India’s first grid-scale lithium-ion battery energy storage system housed in a substation of the Delhi DISCOM—Tata NDPL--with a capacity of 10MW/MWH on June 27th and 28th in Rohini near New Delhi, India.

More than 85 participants comprising various stakeholders, power utilities, PSUs, state govt./SEB’s nodal agencies and research institutions formed part in guided tours on both the days through the battery-based energy storage, which is regarded as a mile stone for India's entire energy sector. Owned and operated by AES and Mitsubishi Corporation, the power station helps providing flexibility to the local grid mainly through frequency control. The entire system is based on state-of-the-art technology from Fluence Energy, a market-leading supplier of energy storage technology, which is jointly owned by Siemens and AES.
