SJVN has launched a tender to supply 1.5 GW of fixed and dispatchable electricity from renewable energy projects with energy storage systems. Projects can be built anywhere in India as long as they are connected to the interstate transmission grid.
The selection of developers of renewable energy sources is made through a tariff-based tender. The bidding process ends on July 20, and the technical bids are opened the following day.
SJVN recently signed an agreement with Maharashtra State Power Generation Co (MAHAGENCO) to develop 5 GW of renewable energy projects in the Indian state of Maharashtra.
In February it said it was is preparing to set up a 700 MW solar power plant in Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh. It signed an agreement with the Uttar Pradesh State Industrial Development Authority to invest $423.4 million to build the project.
SJVN aims for 25 GW electricity production capacity by 2030, more than half of which will come from solar and wind resources.
