IndiGrid has commissioned a pilot project where a solar panel bank is connected to a battery energy storage system (BESS) at its Dhule substation in the Indian state of Maharashtra.
IndiGrid, India’s first publicly listed electricity infrastructure investment trust (InvIT), says it has installed and commissioned a pilot solar project comprising a solar panel bank coupled with a battery energy storage system (BESS) at the Dhule substation in Maharashtra, India. The project supports the substation’s auxiliary consumption requirement.
The BESS solution combined with solar energy production helps IndiGrid reduce the environmental impact of its operations. It also serves as a prototype to expand its presence in the industry’s energy transition opportunities.
“This facility will also serve as a test bed to enhance our capabilities to engage in energy transition opportunities in the solar and BESS space,” said Harsh Shah, CEO of IndiGrid. “Once the operation of this project is established, we look forward to replicating similar systems to our other substations and reducing emissions from our operations.”
