Inviting Global EoI for collaborating / associating in Advanced Chemistry Cell Battery Manufacturing facility in India

Posted on: December 23, 2021 | Back | Print

NTPC Ltd.  (A Government of India Enterprise) is a leading power generation company of India with a total installed capacity of 67,905 MW (including JVs). It feeds a fourth of India's electricity needs.  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) for collaborating/associating in Advanced Chemistry Cell Battery Manufacturing facility in India. The intent of the EoI is to explore the possibility of collaboration with battery manufacturers.

 
Recently Government of India has announced the PLI scheme i.e., “NATIONAL PROGRAMME ON ADVANCED CHEMISTRY CELL (ACC) BATTERY STORAGE “. 
Thus NTPC is exploring the possibility to collaborate with battery manufacturer, who is participating or otherwise, and meet the criteria set forth in the PLI scheme by offering land & infrastructure facility and the possibility of equity in Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) or in an existing company.
 
Globally Battery has been the subject of intensive research in recent times, owing to the energy transition towards electric mobility & integration of cleaner energy with the Grid. CEA’s Optimal Generation mix report outlines the need for 27 GW/108 GWh of grid-scale battery energy storage systems by 2030, implying a steady market for Batteries in near future in India.

NTPC is geared up to play a pivotal role in India's adoption of storage and wants to be in the manufacturing of storage system.
