Energy being a strategic commodity plays a significant role in economic development of a country. Energy systems in India have evolved over last six decades along with country’s economic development, supporting the aspiration of 1.2 billion people, within the framework of democratic polity, globally integrated economy and environmentally sensitive regime. Ever increasing demand of energy has posed tremendous pressure on its limited resources and has necessitated optimum use of its resources. India pursued a reformed development agenda since 1991.

Toll Plaza Micro Grid Project
This project aims at demonstrating the commercial viability and scalability of providing energy storage as a service in a solar PV based micro-grid in India using state-of-the-art lithium-ion batteries from Leclanché, a Swiss lithium-ion battery manufacturer. The project will increase the overall reliability of power supply while decreasing the total costs of energy during the lifetime of the PV + BESS due to the reduction in the consumption of diesel by the end user. The reduction of diesel will not only result in lower levelized costs of energy (LCOE) but will lead to significant reduction in air and noise pollution and carbon emissions due to reduced use of diesel generators. Reliable and affordable 24/7 electricity is one of the hurdles in the widespread adoption of small-scale solar PV. Successful implementation of this project and the dissemination of its results will help in the adoption of small-scale renewable energy in India.
