The microgrid system consists of 100 KWp solar and 466 kWh Lithium Ion Battery Energy Storage System (BESS)

In a move that will help save 115 tonnes of carbon dioxide annually, Delhi’s first urban microgrid (Solar + Battery) system has been set up at Shivalik in Malviya Nagar, the inauguration for which was done by Delhi Power Minister Satyendar Jain.

The microgrid system is set up under the Indo-German Solar Partnership Project (IGSEP) at a cost of around Rs 5.5 crore. The microgrid system consists of 100 KWp solar and 466 kWh Lithium-Ion Battery Energy Storage System (BESS).

The system is capable of ensuring continuous supply from solar and stored battery energy saving from any outages, said a spokesperson of power discom BSES to TOI.

The project is commissioned by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) in Germany, which has signed an agreement through GIZ India, with the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), Government of India, said the BSES spokesperson.

The microgrid has several unique benefits, including reliable clean power-back for up to two hours, production of about 1.5 lakh units of clean energy per annum and offset of CO2 emissions of about 115 tons every year, the spokesperson said.

Microgrids offer tremendous benefits to both consumers and discoms. The urban microgrids will significantly increase the reliability and flexibility of the distribution network.

At the same time, consumers can avoid installing UPS systems, generators and receive green power. Solar power generated during the day will be fed to load and surpluses can be used to charge batteries.

The microgrid helps reduce the load on a transformer and relieves pressure on the low-voltage grid (by boosting the share of renewable energy), thereby increasing reliability and increasing flexibility, the spokesperson added.
