SECI Invites Bids for 1200 MW Solar Projects

The Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) has announced its latest initiative to propel India's renewable energy journey forward. Inviting bids for 1200 megawatts (MW) of Interstate Transmission System (ISTS)-connected solar projects, SECI aims to significantly bolster the nation's solar power capacity. These projects are integrated with a substantial 600 megawatt-hours (MWh) of Energy Storage Systems (ESS), marking a strategic move towards enhancing grid stability and resilience.

With India's commitment to ramp up clean energy generation, SECI's call for bids signals a major opportunity for developers and stakeholders in the renewable energy sector. The tender, catering to utility-scale solar installations, presents a platform for industry players to contribute to the country's ambitious renewable energy targets.

The integration of Energy Storage Systems reflects SECI's forward-thinking approach towards addressing intermittency issues inherent in solar power generation. By incorporating storage solutions, SECI aims to enhance the reliability and flexibility of renewable energy sources, ultimately facilitating smoother grid integration and ensuring a more resilient power infrastructure.

This tender aligns with India's overarching goal of achieving 450 gigawatts (GW) of renewable energy capacity by 2030, as outlined by the Honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modi. SECI's proactive stance in soliciting bids for large-scale solar projects underscores the government's commitment to accelerating the transition towards sustainable energy sources and reducing carbon emissions.

Developers participating in the bidding process will play a pivotal role in shaping the future landscape of India's energy sector. The successful implementation of these projects will not only contribute to the nation's renewable energy targets but also foster innovation and technological advancements in the solar power domain. SECI's endeavour to harness solar energy coupled with energy storage systems marks a significant stride towards a greener and more sustainable future for India.
