IndiGrid secures 180MW battery storage project in Gujarat
.

This project is part of a larger 250 MW / 500 MWh BESS envisioned by GUVNL.

IndiGrid (BSE: 540565 | NSE: INDIGRID), India’s first and largest listed power sector infrastructure investment trust (InvIT), announced today that it has received a Letter of Intent (LOI) from Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam Limited (GUVNL) to Design, Supply, Test, Install, Commission, Operate, and Maintain a 180 MW / 360 MWh Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) in Gujarat.

This project is part of a larger 250 MW / 500 MWh BESS envisioned by GUVNL to enhance the overall energy storage capacities of the state and supply renewable energy during both peak and off-peak hours. According to the Ministry of Power circular 23/26/2021 – R&R dated 29th January 2022, Energy Storage Systems (ESS) will be granted status based on their application and location. Given that this project will be grid-connected and co located in the GETCO sub-station, it will be classified as part of the transmission system.

IndiGrid emerged as the second lowest bidder in the reverse auction process conducted by GUVNL, securing 180 MW / 360 MWh by quoting a fixed tariff of INR 449,996 per MW per month, equivalent to an annual tariff of over INR 97 crore. The project is awarded through a tariff-based competitive bidding (TBCB) mechanism and will be developed on a build, own, and operate (“BOO”) basis for a 12-year period. Further extension of the project is possible on a mutually agreeable basis.

Commenting on the win, Harsh Shah, Chief Executive Officer, and Whole Time Director of IndiGrid, said, “In India’s journey to achieve 500 GW of renewable capacity by 2030, Battery Energy Storage Systems are emerging as a need of the hour to counter the intermittent nature of renewable sources.

Over the last year, IndiGrid has made investments to strengthen its expertise in developing and managing BESS projects by undertaking pilot projects at our own sites. This is the second BESS win for us in the last 6 months – a great achievement for our entire team and a testament of our capability.

We believe that the BESS landscape in India is slated to witness accelerated growth going forward and IndiGrid is positioned well to participate in this upswing.”
