Energy Storage for Renewable Energy Integration in India (StoREin)

01 Sep 2022 to 31 Jul 2029


India aims to integrate a total of 500 gigawatts of non-fossil energy capacity by 2030. In support of this goal, the project is focused on creating favorable framework conditions for the introduction of various energy storage technologies and integrated solutions at the distribution grid level in India. Additionally, it works towards bringing the energy transition closer to the local level. This approach enables decentralized solutions for the provision and use of renewable energies, which can significantly contribute to carbon neutrality. This is particularly crucial as large-scale renewable energy projects face increasing criticism at the community level. Simultaneously, the project offers a wide range of opportunities for local and regional stakeholders by promoting a climate change-adapted, economically viable, and socially inclusive renewable energy industry.
