The India Energy Storage Alliance (IESA) was launched in 2012 by Customized Energy Solutions to promote energy storage & microgrid technologies and their applications in India. IESA’s vision is to make India a global leader in energy storage & microgrid technology adoption and hub for manufacturing of these emerging technologies by 2020. IESA’s mission is to make energy sector in India more competitive and efficient by creating awareness among various stakeholders in the industry and by promoting information exchange with the end users. IESA also provides insights to technology developers, original equipment manufacturers and system integrators on the policy landscape and business opportunities in India through frequent interaction with all key stakeholders.

India is anticipated to become one of the best markets for the adoption of energy storage technologies due to several drivers like the fastest growing economy, increasing share of renewables, transmission constraints, need for providing 24*7 quality power and electric mobility mission. As estimated by IESA, the Indian energy storage market is expected to grow to 70 GW by 2022.
