In continuation to the kick-off meeting of the Policy Working Group chaired by Ms Bindu Madhavi, IESA, second meeting was held on June 2, 2020. Wherein, the agenda was to discuss the list of policy priorities which India Energy Storage Alliance would take up with the Central and State Governments in the FY21.
Discussion points: IESA letter to PMO on launch of Giga Scale manufacturing plan. SECI Concept Paper on firm and flexible renewable energy projects with high PLF - IESA response. MNRE set up project development cell to promote investments in renewable sector. MNRE other important updates – FDI Cell, introduction of ultra-mega solar projects. CTU separation from PGCIL; impact on transmission planning. Amendment in the revised Guidelines and Standards for Charging Infrastructure for Electric Vehicles. Policy Priority updates. Creation of Standardization cell in CEA. RERC concept paper on EV infrastructure. Submission of Inputs to Telangana EV& ESS policy. Update on IESA Battery Swapping roundtable - Creation of roadmap for India. Suggestions from members for AtmaNirbhar Bharat.
Discussion points: Energy Storage Tender update. EV Tender Update. Energy Storage Financing: AIIB’s approved USD 75 million funding for Tata Cleantech Sustainable Infrastructure Facility to include energy storage. Central govt’s tariff cap at public charging stations for electric vehicles. Business Updates from the members: Activities and projects in pipeline.
Energy management solutions are becoming an essential platform with various energy mixes in the energy ecosystem. The emergence of renewable sources (wind, solar, pumped hydro) and multiple conventional sources of energy (thermal, oil and gas) making the generation management difficult over time. Inherent nature of renewable makes it’s difficult for forecasting and also it required an well-developed monitoring system for the generation management. With the integration of energy storage systems, the evolution of the smart grid and virtual power plant concepts are making utilities are more complex. In the electricity ecosystem, the deregulation of the market enables multiple players as part of generation, transmission and distribution value chain. With various load profiles from new-age industries, commercial establishments, and critical infrastructure are becoming more demanding on power reliability and quality. In this diverse scenario, energy managers rely on developed EMS platforms to manage Demand – Response, VPP, Vehicle to grid (V2G) integration, distributed energy sources, Grid stability, grid frequency management, microgrids, and energy storage assets. In this webinar, global experts shared their experience and available energy management solutions for the future electricity network.
One of the main factors concerning batteries is their inherent performance variability depending on the use case. Additionally, the large variety in the existing chemistries, form factors, power vs. energy cells, etc. makes an accurate determination of performances more challenging. Further complexing the situation is the large effect of ambient temperatures on performance, which can vary widely, based on geographical locations, physical locations (indoor or outdoor) and usage patterns. In this webinar, we are highlighting some of the key parameters, how to test them using battery testing instruments and general relationships between operation and performance of battery systems. This webinar covered some of the new developments in advanced battery research globally and about interpreting them.

India, predominantly uses lead acid battery for urban households back up. But with the cost reduction of Li-Ion battery, various companies tried to launch home energy storage systems. With higher adoption of rooftop solar, Solar+ energy storage system are evolving as an alternate solution for power back-ups in urban locality. Gradually, India might see a shift to grid-independent systems in coming years, and storage systems such as solar-plus-storage will see a significant boost in the market. It will also be likely to be a boom in the rural or off-grid solar+energy storage systems. There is no specific subsidy scheme by the government for home storage systems or Solar+ storage systems. But through the Saubhagya scheme, the government is trying to provide Solar+ Li-Ion battery system in remote areas for energy access. In this webinar, experts highlighted the global and India market updates and future potential for distributed home storage systems.
