US-based EverGreen Power has been contracted to carry out the feasibility study for the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) funded 300MW wind-solar hybrid power project with battery storage in Dwarka, Gujarat. The grant has been awarded to India’s Shivman Wind Energy, which chose EverGreen Power as the contract partner.
EverGreen, with its headquarters in Chicago (USA) and Mumbai (India), began operations in India in 2014. So far, it has executed and sold an aggregate 304.5 MW of renewable energy projects (wind 281.5 MW and solar 23 MW). Besides, it has a 1400 MW pipeline comprising 1100 MW hybrid, 200 MW wind, and 100 MW solar.
Battery Storage can be an attractive model for India in reducing carbon emissions, dispatching renewable energy during peak demand, enhancing energy security and contributing to the vision of clean and sustainable India.
The USTDA is funding the Gujarat project as part of its mission to promote sustainable infrastructure projects and foster economic growth in partner countries like India.
“Gujarat is one of India’s most promising states for wind and solar power generation. USTDA’s study will help Shivman tap into this significant potential by planning a new wind and solar power plant that will store energy using battery technology,” said Enoh T. Ebong, USTDA’s Acting Director. “Our support for this project puts into action a broader U.S. government policy to work with our overseas partners to set the world on a sustainable climate pathway. Moreover, this project has the potential to support significant exports of U.S.-based clean energy solutions.”
USTDA’s feasibility study will provide Shivman with critical wind and solar resource assessments and conceptual designs for energy storage, ensuring that the project will be a source of reliable, clean energy. The project’s hybrid design will mitigate renewable energy variability to help stabilize Gujarat’s regional electricity grid, increase overall efficiency, and lower electricity costs.
