Advanced Energy Storage Manufacturing Masterclass

The world is experiencing an unprecedented disruption in the energy sector. Global market trends irrefutably define energy storage and e-mobility as the future growth areas. India is anticipated to emerge amongst the top three markets globally in the next five years due to the faster adoption of e-mobility led by 2Ws and 3Ws as well as the need for energy storage systems (ESS) to support the renewable integration for electricity grid.

To aid this transition and to capture the economic benefits at hand, the Indian government launched Production Link Incentive (PLI) for Advanced Chemistry Cell (ACC) Battery Manufacturing in 2021. The ACC PLI proposed an integrated program to facilitate and advance battery storage manufacturing in the country with an outlay of INR 18,100 crore earmarked towards the scheme. The intention is to establish an ACC manufacturing capacity of 50 GWh and a niche ACC capacity of 5 GWh. The program also set a target of a minimum of 60% domestic value addition to be achieved by the giga factories by 2027. This has generated a tremendous opportunity for additional companies to get involved in the supply chain for the giga factories, and explore export opportunities from Europe, the USA, and Southeast Asia.

The Request for Proposal (RFP) released by the Ministry of Heavy Industries (MHI  in October 2021 has attracted bids from 10 companies to set up manufacturing facilities with over 100 GWh capacity. This scheme is expected to help India cater to the demand for advanced batteries by 2024-25. In addition, the niche ACC PLI is expected to attract additional 5-10 smaller facilities with 500 MWh to 1 GWh capacity for next-generation advanced chemistry batteries. With this initiative, India intends to become Aatmanirbhar (self-reliant) by emphasizing building a domestic battery manufacturing ecosystem.

The Advanced Energy Storage Manufacturing Masterclass is a program designed to understand the policy framework, practical details of the giga factory set-up, the supply chain opportunities and challenges in the Indian context, safety, international collaborations, and current and future market trends in the sector. This masterclass is also an opportunity to understand the areas of research and innovation emphasizing the need for focused skill development for a competitive workforce.
