Renewable Energy Integration: India's Next Big Challenge

Building Flexibility and Grid-Firming Will Be a Key Focus Going Forward

Abstract

Battery storage, green hydrogen and flexible coal-fired power generation can help India address its next big challenge of integrating large-scale variable renewable energy into the electricity grid over the next decade, according to a new report from the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA). The transition to low-cost, variable renewable energy generation requires a flexible grid that can respond rapidly to changes in power demand dynamics. Battery storage can provide a solution to help the grid manage massive amounts of intermittent wind and solar, provide dispatchable power during peak demand periods and other essential grid services. And battery cost deflation is now making utility-scale battery storage projects possible for India.
