Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) has 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.

The tender will be part of the National Solar Mission (NSM) Phase II, Batch IV, Tranche V.

In July, PV Tech reported that SECI would soon be tendering for utility-scale solar-plus-storage projects with 100MW in Andhra Pradesh and 200MW in Karnataka, with each 50MW project connected to 2.5MWh of storage capacity.

Storage will become increasingly important in India as the rapid uptake of solar energy exerts strain on the grid.
