IndiGrid, India’s first listed power sector infrastructure investment trust (InvIT), today announced that it has installed and commissioned a pilot project of solar panel bank coupled with battery energy storage systems (BESS) at its Dhule Substation in Maharashtra. The project will meet the substation’s auxiliary consumption requirement.
The BESS solution, coupled with solar generation, will not only help IndiGrid to reduce the environmental impact of its operations but also act as a prototype for expanding its presence in energy transition opportunities in the sector.
Harsh Shah, chief executive officer of IndiGrid, said, “This facility will also act as a test bed for augmenting our capabilities to participate in energy transition opportunities in solar and BESS space. As the operations at this project stabilize, we look forward to replicating similar systems across our other substations and reducing emissions of our operations.”
