The Ministry of Power (MoP) has issued the draft Electricity (Amendment) Rules, 2022. The MoP has suggested creating a central pool of renewable energy sources from which an intermediary company will procure power to be supplied to an entity that will undertake distribution and retail supply to more than one state.

This publication highlights lessons from 26 case studies in the Cook Islands and Tonga. It provides recommendations on improving the implementation of battery energy storage and renewable energy-based hybrid electricity systems.

Two standalone energy storage system (ESS) tenders by the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) and NTPC will augment the country’s energy storage capacity by 1 gigawatt (GW)/4 gigawatt-hours (GWh) and create further opportunities in the Indian ESS market, according to this new report by the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analys

Energy storage can bring many benefits to electricity systems, including enhanced grid reliability, efficiency, and flexibility. It will also be a key enabler of mass decarbonization and climate change mitigation, facilitating the expansion of variable renewable energy sources such as wind and solar while ensuring grid security.

As countries progress towards a clean and sustainable future, Energy Storage Systems (ESS) can play a critical role in serving key energy end-uses in an energy secure and environmentally benign manner.

CSE believes that given the encouraging projections of growth of BTM technologies, that are ushering in a consumer-centric clean energy transition, we need to lay down robust and sustainable principles for Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) in the sector.

Achieving deep decarbonization in the US will require days, and potentially weeks, of energy storage to be available – but today’s technologies only provide hours of capacity. Evolving technologies, like hydrogen, will be needed for long duration storage that can extend to weeks of capacity.

India is committed to reducing GHG emission intensity up to 33-35% by 2030 from the 2005 level and set the target of 40% non-fossil based electricity generation in the energy mix. This will require scaling up of share of renewable energy (RE) considerably beyond the present target of 175 GW by 2022.

Stored energy can power GPS location-based transmitters or 1.8 volt LED

Researchers from Tianjin University said Thursday that they had developed ultra-high-energy fluorinated carbon materials, the key technology to realizing ultra-energy storage.
