India's Green Energy Transition

India's Green Energy Transition

Energy storage plays a significant role in effectively harnessing renewable energy, which is crucial for ensuring environmental sustainability. Energy storage solutions can help achieve India's net-zero targets by catering to intermittency and seasonality associated with high renewable energy penetration and promoting emission-free transport. Our work involves battery modelling in off-grid systems, development of pumped hydro-energy storage (PHES) pricing mechanisms, and the sizing and placement of energy storage for state transmission networks. We are keen to explore the storage needs for large-scale renewable energy adoption, behind-the-meter storage requirements, flow-battery and techno-economic assessment, co-located storage feasibility, and emerging battery chemistries.
