Inviting Global Expression of Interest from any Indian/Global Companies/their Consortium/Affiliates/Representatives for setting up 1000 MWh of BESS at NTPC Power Plants in India

Posted on: July 01, 2021 | Back | Print

NTPC Ltd.  (A Government of India Enterprise) is a leading power generation company of India with total installed capacity of 65,825 MW (including JVs). It feeds a fourth of India's electricity needs or as we say "NTPC lights up every fourth bulb in the country". It is one of the most efficient power companies in India, having operations that match global standards.

NTPC has floated a global Expression of Interest (EOI) to set up 1000 MWh of Grid-scale Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) at single/multiple NTPC power plants across the country. The role of Grid-scale battery energy storage systems (BESS) is critical in long-range resource planning under high variable renewable energy scenarios and its role in providing fast responding, high-quality energy services for ancillary operations is already proven across large power systems in the world. Central Electricity Authority (India) Optimal Generation mix report outlines the need for 27 GW of grid-scale battery energy storage systems by 2030 with four hours of storage.

NTPC is geared up to play a pivotal role in India's adoption of renewable energy and further integration with the grid having recently enhanced its target of having 60 GW of Renewable Energy capacity by 2032.

As part of NTPC’s energy transition towards greening the grid, the BESS facility at NTPC premises will smoothen the integration of large amount of variable renewable energy in the Indian grid. 

Through this initiative, NTPC  would like to implement a Grid-scale BESS at the appropriately chosen power station(s) of NTPC to provide the Indian grid with a flexible storage system and extend the facility for ancillary operations to enhance the reliability of the grid.

The global Expression of Interest (EoI) has been published on 26.06.2021 and seeking response from Indian/Global Companies/their Consortium/Affiliates/Representatives.
