Exide Leclanche’s Nexcharge in collaboration with Tata Power Delhi Distribution Ltd (TPDDL) inaugurated India’s first Grid Connected Li-ion battery-based Community Energy Storage System at Rani Bagh, Delhi. The 0.52 MWh Battery energy storage system at TPDDL’s Rani Bagh substation will provide peak shaving, var compensation, and deviation settlement mechanism based on frequency response at substation level with power backup to preferential consumers in case of a grid outage.

Stefan Louis, Chief Executive Officer, and Chief Technology Officer, Exide Leclanche Energy Pvt. Ltd. said, “Battery-based energy storage (BESS) provides the agility to better integrate intermittent solar and wind energy resources into India’s electric grid and ensure high-quality power for consumers. A Community Energy Storage System like this will ensure consumers get to experience better levels of stability, reliability, quality, and control. Both customers and distributors will benefit from this service. We are very happy to partner with Tata Power DDL to set up this new 0.52 MWh grid-connected system, which will pave a new path for wider adoption of grid-scale energy storage technology across India. It’s another step towards all Indians accessing smart sources of energy.”

It utilised a Global Project Team approach wherein teams from US, Europe, and India collaborated towards the project.

Ganesh Srinivasan, Chief Executive Officer – Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited said, “We are proud to associate with Nexcharge for setting up country’s first Grid Connected Community Energy Storage Systems (CESS) at the community level. This will further strengthen our network and ensure reliable and quality power supply to our consumers at all times. Instead of building a humungous infrastructure of transformers and electric equipment, CESS can be used to meet peak demand while storing surplus power. I believe wider adoption of such ‘CESS’ will help in balancing the load curve of discoms and make them future-ready.”
