Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) has issued a request for selection (RfS) for 100MW of grid-connected solar PV projects with large-scale battery energy storage systems at Kadapa Solar Park, Andhra Pradesh.
The tender will be part of the National Solar Mission (NSM) Phase II, Batch IV, Tranche V.
In July PV Tech reported that SECI would soon be tendering for utility-scale solar-plus-storage projects with 100MW in Andhra Pradesh and 200MW in Karnataka, with each 50MW project connected to 2.5MWh of storage capacity.
Storage will beocme increasingly important in India as the rapid uptake of solar energy exerts strain on the grid.
The PV IndiaTech 2020 conference will continue to bring together all key domestic and overseas stakeholders, including government bodies, investors, and the leading companies today from manufacturing to O&M and asset management. To thrive globally as a major PV power beyond 2020, India has to succeed in unlocking its potential both to manufacture and to lay claim to quality utility-scale solar farms that are providing high returns on investment to site owners.
