Implementing time-of-use tariff for peak load management

Time-of-use (ToU) tariff can be applied to encourage domestic and industrial consumers to shift their electricity usage to non-peak hours, thereby reducing the system’s load during peak periods. A new study examines the feasibility of the ToU tariff policy in the state of Gujarat. It also suggests a framework and effective roadmap for the utilities to understand the procedure and required infrastructure to implement ToU. 

Ieefa proposes a three-pronged approach for grid firming 

A new report discusses battery storage, green hydrogen, and flexible coal-fired power generation as key grid firming options for India as solar and wind are poised to form 51% of the nation’s total installed generation capacity by 2030.

Adani chief talks solar and hydrogen storage opportunity

Covid-19 crisis has provided system operators with insights on keeping the grid stable with high levels of renewable penetration. Post Covid-19, this may be the new norm, Gautam Adani said in a LinkedIn post recently.

Global supergrid vs. regional supergrids

Researchers from Finland’s Lappeenranta University of Technology have assessed the economic advantages of a fully interconnected global network. They found that an international grid could contribute to a global LCOE of €52.50/MWh. The higher complexity of such a system, however, would only be marginally compensated by additional economic benefits.

Is green hydrogen necessary to balance a renewables grid?

A report by Norwegian energy consultant DNV GL has considered the opportunity for long-term energy storage to play a role in balancing annual supply and demand fluctuations in a renewables-led grid. Using 58 years of Dutch weather and energy consumption data, the study found long-term solutions such as green hydrogen could make a valuable contribution – but perhaps not as much as some analysts believe.

Energy storage will take 3 years to gather steam

There is a need to shift the consumer mindset from conventional backup solutions to battery storage too even as the industry gets more clarity on technical feasibility for the Indian context.

MNRE invites gravity storage, solar-driven hydrogen production research proposals

The preliminary proposals must reach the ministry by June 30. These will be examined by a committee and the shortlisted parties will be invited to submit final proposal.
