Tata Power, Mitsubishi Corporation inaugurate grid-scale battery-based energy storage system

Tata Power and Mitsubishi Corporation have inaugurated India’s first grid-scale battery-based energy storage system. The 10 MW grid-connected system, owned by AES and Mitsubishi Corporation, will pave the path for wider adoption of grid-scale energy storage technology across India. Fluence, a market-leading supplier of energy storage technology jointly owned by Siemens and AES, supplied its state-of-the-art advancion technology for the project. Battery-based energy storage enables electricity to be stored and then delivered within milliseconds, reducing grid instability and enabling more energy to be captured and delivered on demand. The project is located at Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited’s substation in Rohini, Delhi and will help in grid stabilisation, peak load management, greater system flexibility and reliability. It will also protect critical facilities for 2 million consumers served by the company.
