Widening the scope of power storage in its Wind-Solar Hybrid Policy, MNRE has removed the word ‘battery’ from certain clauses in order to encourage use of other means of power storage devices.

Further, the ministry has emphasized on the use of pumped hydro, compressed air and flywheel technology for the power storage purposes.

Power storage has been crucial with the surge of solar and wind applications throughout the world. Alone the solar panels or wind mills will do no good to the society if there is a lack of storage space for the storage of power generated.

Transmission is also a part of post generation process. Poor transmission of power is a major factor responsible for power wastage in a grid.

Bringing diversity in the energy storage segment would immensely boost the renewable industries which rely greatly upon the storage capacities under them.
