India Energy Storage Alliance (IESA) is set to host its annual international conference and exhibition event, India Energy Storage Week (IESW), from July 1 to July 5, 2024, in New Delhi. The event is expected to witness the participation of 150+ key partners and exhibitors and 1000+ companies.

Singapore-headquartered, VFlowTech will announce the launch of the largest long-duration energy storage manufacturing facility (non-lithium battery) at Palwal, Haryana, during the India Energy Storage Week (IESW) 2024. The facility will produce VFlow Tech’s advanced kWh and MWh vanadium redox flow battery (VRFB) systems, representing a significant milestone in the company’s expansion strategy.

Vivek Seth, managing director (India), VFlowTech India, said, “The high-tech facility has a current annual capacity of 100 MWh with plans to scale up to a Gigafactory in the next two years with committed investments from the parent Singapore company. Now we are ready for Indian operations and scaling up with a larger presence in India.”

Nash Energy will showcase its indigenously produced, made-in-India Li-ion battery cell at IESW 2024. Anil Kumar, COO, Nash Energy, said, “We are the first company in India to launch a dedicated Li-ion battery plant at a massive scale. Nash has set up a Lithium-ion cell manufacturing plant in Karnataka with an annual capacity of 600 MWh, scalable to 1.5 GWh, to produce LFP cylindrical 32140 format cells. The factory will start production by next month.”

BatX Energies has announced the opening of its cutting-edge battery recycling and materials extraction facility, HUB-1, at IESW 2024. The new facility is designed to extract 2.5 thousand metric tons of battery materials annually, encompassing all battery chemistries to drive the global energy transition to a sustainable and circular economy pathway. This plant is fully integrated with an advanced material science research lab (funded by the Ministry of Heavy Industries), a commercial-scale battery refurbishing setup, and a patented, indigenously designed material extraction plant.

Lohum, a battery material company specializing in lithium-ion battery recycling, is also announcing plans to enter next-gen ‘Manganese-rich’ lithium-ion battery technology manufacturing, supported by an R&D grant from India’s Ministry of Mines. Aligned with this objective, the company has roped in ex-Tesla veteran Chaitanya Sharma, founder of Nascent Materials.

Bharat Cell by Khusmanda Power also foraying into battery energy storage space with the announcement of a 2 GWh BSES system manufacturing facility at IESW 2024.

India Energy Storage Week will serve as the launchpad for new products, solutions, and technologies in the space of energy storage, electric mobility, and green hydrogen. New product launches at IESW 2024 include a 20 ft BESS system, specialized solvent extractant chemical for the recovery of cobalt from spent lithium-ion batteries and mining ores, isothermal air compression and expansion technology for extra-long-duration energy storage, and composite overwrapped pressure vessel for green Hydrogen storage by various companies.
