NTPC invites proposals for round-the-clock renewables supply


NTPC Vidyut Vyapar Nigam Ltd., an arm of state-owned power producer NTPC Ltd., has started seeking proposals from experienced developers to supply round-the-clock renewable energy from solar, hydro, wind, pumped storage, battery energy storage, and hybrid power plants. The power supplies will be procured on a medium- to long-term basis.

“The [expression of interest] will also be used to arrive at uniform specifications and parameters for the proposed procurement and to collect the information about probable suppliers,” said NTPC. “On receipt of [the expression of interest], technical discussions/presentations may be held with the [renewable energy] generators, who are prima facie, considered technically capable for the supply of [renewable energy] power.”

Applicants should have a minimum 10 MW of renewables to supply. To be eligible, the applicants should have commercially operational renewable-energy plants or storage projects set for commissioning on or before Dec. 31, 2023. Generators who have already obtained investment approvals or contracts for the main package would be eligible.
