Indian manufacturer Vision Mechatronics has deployed a lithium-lead-acid hybrid battery storage system coupled with a rooftop solar plant at Om Shanti Retreat Centre (ORC) in the State of Haryana. The 1MWh storage system uses a combination of 614.4 kWh Lithium batteries with a 480kWh tubular-gel lead-acid battery.
India’s Ministry of New and Renewable Energy is funding the research to develop high-efficiency crystalline silicon solar cells, including those with passivated emitter and rear contact structure, and perovskites.
The Rajasthan-headquartered engineering, procurement and construction company commissioned the project as part of a 40 MW solar park in Bhiwani district. The business has an ambitious renewables plan for the state with 150 MW in its two-year pipeline.
The region could, by 2050, cut greenhouse gas emissions from power, heat, transport and desalination which are expected to add up to more than 825 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent this year. Such a transition could be perfectly possible, technically and financially.
Bidding closes on July 20 for installation and commissioning of grid-connected solar projects. The projects are to be set up in RESCO mode on government buildings across the state.
With this, the carmaker’s total solar power capacity has increased to 6.3 MW. The plant—developed in ‘carport’ style—will cover an area of 32,985 square metres and work as a roof for the cars parked underneath in addition to meeting internal energy requirements of the Gurugram facility.
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.
