Meeting with Energy Secy. Madhya Pradesh

The team met I.C.P Keshari and discussed about 500MW BESS EoI. He agreed that the EOI is not in
shape and asked us to share our suggestions over the same .He agreed and asked the Head SLDC to
meet us and provide the necessary time and data to develop the BESS opportunity. Post the
meeting we hope to submit a detailed report on BESS and its business models

CBIP Conference on Energy Storage

CBIP organized a 2 days conference on Energy Storage. It covered a large range of topics relating to
BESS and Pumped Storage. The stakeholders were government bodies like CEA, CERC, POSOCO, MoP
etc. along with State electricity board and PSUs like BHEL, Powergrid. The broad topics of
discussion were: Need for Energy Storage, Applications of Energy Storage, Technologies of Energy
Storage, Business Models, Need for policy and regulatory framework. Along with BESS, PSPs was also
discussed at length with the need to revive existing/under construction pumped storage projects.
At the end of conference way forward & policy recommendation conclusion was prepared which the
CBIP team will send to various ministries. We played a pivotal role in the conference by helping
CBIP team with the Base paper and concluding paper. Along with this, we also presented 2 papers
and participated in panel discussion on storage as transmission asset.

Meeting with EE Mahatransco & GETCO

Team met with EE Mahatransco and submitted draft report on 50MW BESS for Mumbai. The CE & EE
will go through the draft report and give their feedback. Meanwhile, we have requested
Mahatrasnco for peak- off peak pricing data to improve our storage need assessment We have also
submitted the draft concept paper to GETCO for review and feedback.

GE gas plant to close 20 years early, become battery storage site

• The plant was first approved in 2003 and only came online about a decade ago, according to the
California Energy Commission. Now the plant is set to close, only having gone through one-third
of its designed useful life. The project site is being sold to Nova Power “for the purpose of
developing a battery energy storage system
• California is aiming to get 100% of its electricity from carbon-free sources by 2045, with 50% of
its electricity generation to come from renewables by 2025.

BASF enters energy storage market with NGK NAS battery partnership
• BASF is using NGK Insulators’ sodium sulfur batteries as its entry point into the energy market
• NAS batteries are thought to be more expensive upfront than lithium-ion but can provide those
longer durations of storage that lithium cannot easily do.

World Bank to Lend $300 Million to China for Battery Storage and Renewables
• This project will help accelerate the ongoing clean energy transition in China and contribute to
the country’s emission reduction targets and will also reduce the curtailment of renewable
energy capacity.

• This project is part of the World Bank Group’s September 2018 commitment to significantly
increase support to battery storage solutions globally through a $1 billion battery storage
investment program.

Uttar Pradesh Floats Expression of Interest for EV Charging Stations

• UPEIDA has issued an expression of interest (EoI) to set up charging stations for electric vehicles
(EVs) in cities, highways, and expressways across the state.
• The location identified are Lucknow, Kanpur, Varanasi, Agra, Noida, Prayagraj, Ghaziabad and
Meerut. The highway identified are: Agra-Lucknow Expressway, the Delhi-Agra Expressway and
the Eastern Peripheral Expressway, Purvanchal Expressway from Lucknow to Balia, 3 national
highways passing from UP i.e. NH-1, 24 and 27.
FICCI Endorses Battery Swapping Facilities to Boost EV Adoption Under FAME
• The adoption of battery swapping model, the paper states that in battery swapping, a fully
charged lithium-ion battery replaces a depleted one at a swapping station in few minutes which
in turn reduces the time to charge the electric vehicles.
• However, there are key challenges which includes standardization across original equipment
manufacturers (OEMs) and vehicle types, ensuring availability, electricity availability when
Andhra Pradesh to Deploy 350 Electric Buses In Five Cities
• The Andhra Pradesh State Road Transport Corporation (APSRTC) has come up with a proposal to
deploy 350 electric buses in five cities in the state. Overall, the project is likely to cost ₹7.64
• APSRTC is undergoing losses because of the increase in diesel prices. This proposal is expected
to combat this issue and help the ongoing efforts of the central and state governments to adopt
cleaner sources of energy in transport and mobility.
Economic Survey says limited charging infra pulling down Electric Vehicles
• According to ES, the three key issues that are impacting the adoption of electric vehicles in
India are - limited availability of charging infrastructure, time delays in charging and battery
• if India reaches an EV sales penetration of 30 per cent for private cars, 70 per cent for
commercial cars, 40 per cent for buses, and 80 per cent for 2 and 3 wheelers by 2030, a saving
of 846 million tons of net CO2 emissions and oil savings of 474 MTOE can be achieved.
BESCOM Readies Blueprint to Set Up 678 EV Charging Stations in Karnataka
• BESCOM has drawn a plan for setting up 678 electric vehicles (EV) charging stations across the
state of Karnataka. The proposed plan has 100 charging stations proposed for Bangalore. Also,
there are 112 charging stations set to be operational by August 2019.
• The BESCOM proposal envisions setting up charging stations between every 20-25 km, for a
stretch of 50 km distance on either side of the road along the Bangalore-Tumkur highway, and a
100 km stretch along the Bangalore-Mysore highway. The charging stations would be mostly set
up in the premises of government buildings.
