The renewable energy agency of the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh, NREDCAP, has received expressions of interest for a 500MW wind-solar-hybrid park development in Ananthapuram District, which can be expanded to 1GW over three-to-five years.

The Andhra Pradesh government has committed to 10GW of solar by 2022 and 8GW of wind. Of this, there are plans for 3GW of hybrid wind and solar plants. However, the state is also looking at means of incorporating energy storage to alleviate grid power management problems coming from intermittent renewable energy.

The estimated cost for developing the wind-solar-storage hybrid park is INR7 billion (US$104million).

A developer should be awarded the project by 28 September.

In August, Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) issued a request for selection (RfS) for 100MW of grid-connected solar PV projects with large-scale battery energy storage systems at Kadapa Solar Park, Andhra Pradesh.
