The Bihar-based rural clean energy services provider has received US$4 million from India Renewable Energy Development Agency (IREDA) to construct 140 microgrids in the states of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar.
Microgrids that use on-site renewables such as rooftop solar can help relieve peak demand on the grid during afternoons, and later in the evenings through battery storage. This can help power distribution companies (discoms) avoid buying expensive power to meet peak demand.
Tata Power brings technology and financial strength to set up the distributed, small-scale solar power systems in rural areas and provide round-the-clock power supply to households and businesses. CSC brings to the partnership village-level entrepreneurs to provide quick, low-cost service support.
The use of polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells as backup power generation in solar microgrids could drive down costs and improve efficiency, according to an international group of researchers. They have proposed a new energy management system that could be ideal for hybrid solar-hydrogen microgrids in remote locations.
TP Renewable Microgrid has installed an aggregate 3 MW of solar microgrid capacity with its 100th project commissioned in Ratnapur, Uttar Pradesh.
Over 20 countries, 50+ regulators & policy makers including NITI Aayog, Department of Science & Technology (DST), The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), 300+ industry leaders, 100+ partners & exhibitors and 1000+ delegates participating in the event.
With demand for cleaner forms of energy and a greater need for flexibility and reliability in the power supply, the role of battery energy storage is critical. Innovation in battery technology is essential to match demand growth and the shift in technical requirements. Predictions of 400,000 MWh of battery storage required by 2025 means that all battery technologies will play a role in contributing to a clean energy future.
pv magazine reached out to companies that are active in the microgrid segment for details on the market and its latest tech developments. What follows is a look at some of the most interesting projects from across the globe.
TP Renewable Microgrid—the joint venture of India’s integrated power company and the US-based impact investor—is said to become the world’s largest microgrid developer and operator with plans to set up 10,000 microgrids by 2026.
“The addition of microgrids creates opportunities for developers to penetrate areas which were not previously explored while allowing the government to meet its renewable energy targets,” says Dr Jayashri Ravishankar—senior lecturer at the University of New South Wales (UNSW), Sydney—in an interview with pv magazine.
