Certification Training on “Energy storage and its importance with Renewable Integration, Grid Stability & Electric Vehicles”

About the Event


With India’s vision to have 450 GW of renewables by 2030, the penetration of energy storage in this area is essential and vital. Also, the optimal generation report of Central Electricity Authority projects a requirement of 108 GWh of energy storage at the generation side for grid security by 2030. In this regard, India need supportive policies, higher penetration rate of storage in grid-scale projects, in ancillary services to the grid, in the distribution grid and in the unconventional behind-the-meter applications such as for Diesel optimization, rooftop solar etc.

Over the years, energy storage has seen technological improvements along with the drop in battery cell prices and has made energy storage a tough competitor as compared with other technologies. As on date RE + battery storage is already more economical than new built coal or gas-peaker plants.  India Energy Storage Alliance (IESA) projects the stationary energy storage market can grow to 328 GWh by 2027. In the near future, the market also shows commercial avenues in the integration of storage with renewables.

With National Electric Mobility Mission Plan, FAME Scheme and with state specific EV polices, India is aggressively targeting higher EV adoption. The cumulative battery demand for EVs during 2021-2030 is expected to hit 950 GWh. It includes Lithium-ion chemistry and others. E4 Wheeler segment is likely to contribute nearly half of this potential.

To drive the efficient policymaking in the said sector, the role of energy storage across possible avenues along with a clearer and deeper understanding is the need of the hour. Considering the need, IESA in collaboration with Administrative Staff College of India (ASCI) is organizing a five-day-long online training course on “Energy storage and its importance with Renewable Integration, Grid Stability & Electric Vehicles”.

Course Objective

The design of the online course is to capacitate the people working or hope to work in the field of energy storage/ renewable integration/ electric vehicle and the prospective policymakers to develop a better understanding of the role of energy storage across sectors.

Program Design

The course comprises of self-study, technological learning tools – presentations, videos featuring case studies from various countries and other audio material. Participants will also get a chance to interact and learn from our program mentors through online interactions and from the webinar. The course design is to help the participants to attend the program along with their regular work and study the course material at their convenience.
