Under joint venture ‘Shuchi Anant Virya,’ Fourth Partner Energy has commissioned solar powered charging facilities in Gurugram and Pune which will enable commercial electric vehicle (EV) fleet operator Lithium Urban Technologies to charge around 30 and 40 EVs, respectively, at the same time.
Based in Gurugram, the factory is spread over 30,000 sq.ft and can produce 240 MWh of high-temperature battery storage solutions annually. These batteries can charge to 80% capacity within two hours and operate in excess of 55ºC, which makes them suitable for hot, humid tropical climates.
Consultancy Bridge to India has looked into its crystal ball to predict India will add 10 GW of solar capacity this year and the same next year before deployment slows to 7 GW per year in 2022 and 2023, dogged by hurdles such as an inexplicable ongoing demand for new coal-fired power plants.
Applications are invited for setting up cumulative grid-connected capacity of 10 MW for Uttar Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam and 15 MW for Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam. The solar power generated will be purchased by Discoms at a pre-fixed levelized tariff of Rs 3.11/KWh.
Haryana Power Generation Corporation Limited has retendered ground-mounted solar capacity of 57 MW with relaxation in eligibility criteria. The projects—to be set up on build, operate and transfer basis—shall come up at three sites in the state and will be awarded through international competitive bidding. Bidding closes on November 25.
The estimated project cost for 25 years is Rs 1500 crore. Bids can be submitted till October 21, along with Rs 50 lakh as bank guarantee.
The charging stations—located at the resorts of Haryana Tourism Corporation Ltd at Ambala, Kurukshetra, Karnal, Panipat and Samalkha (Sonepat)—are equipped with a rooftop solar power plant each to supply green energy for electric vehicle chargers.
Jointly organised by India Energy Storage Alliance (IESA) and The International Centre for Automotive Technology (ICAT), the conclave on EV and charging infrastructure will take place on August 9, 2019 at ICAT’s Manesar Campus in Gurugram with over a hundred participating companies.
Currently, the independent power producer has over 500 MW of open access solar portfolio, with leading IT and manufacturing giants among its client base.
With Karnataka withdrawing open access waivers and the policy not replicated elsewhere, corporate buyers are increasingly favouring group captive projects that are exempt from the cross-subsidy surcharge—the largest and most unpredictable component of grid charges for open access power.
