The new grid scale battery-based Energy Storage System uses Danfoss sustainable Drives technology for achieving higher energy efficiency
Danfoss India recently inaugurated the country’s first privately owned and operated grid-scale battery-based Energy Storage System (ESS) at the company’s Oragadam campus in Chennai to store the excess energy generated by renewables (solar power plant) installed on campus. As a reflection of Danfoss’s commitment towards achieving ‘carbon neutrality by 2030’, the ESS has been engineered using Danfoss’ sustainable Drives technology.
Jurgen Fischer, President of Danfoss Climate Solutions, Denmark, and Soren Kannik Marquardsen, Minister Counsellor, Regional Coordinator South Asia & Head of Trade Council at the Danish Embassy in India, presided the inauguration ceremony in the presence of Ravichandran Purushothaman, President – Danfoss India Region, and other Danfoss India Management Team members.
Fuelled by a rise in the global focus on climate change, this energy storage system is one of the top priorities that will accelerate the growth of electrification, decarbonization and digitalization. The energy storage system will act as a key enabler in helping India realize its target of 40% installed renewables capacity by 2030. The system consists of a Danfoss 250 kW PCS, 270 Kwph SARA battery, a BMS, an EMS containerized integrated battery energy storage system with grid-scale technology system. A scalable, versatile, dependable, and cost-effective solution, the Danfoss grid-scale battery-based energy storage system is an emerging landmark innovation in developing futuristic technologies and creating a sustainable tomorrow.
Ravichandran Purushothaman said: “We take pride in being industry pioneers with the launch of this new ESS facility at our Chennai campus. This is a testimony of our climate change commitments and denotes a new stride in India’s green transition. Danfoss technologies is poised to help customers accelerate their renewables adoption and decarbonization journey.”
“It gives me an immense pleasure in joining the inauguration of India’s first private energy storage system, at Danfoss’ Chennai campus. The launch of this system is an exemplary initiative towards strengthening of the Green Strategic Partnership between India and Denmark. This green milestone is a testimony to how Danish technology matched with India’s scale can accelerate the nation’s journey towards achieving Net-Zero by 2070 and Danfoss’s decarbonization goals by 2030,” said Soren Kannik.
“We are proud to introduce India’s first privately owned energy storage system. We believe in developing innovative technologies that will foster creation of a sustainable future. With the help of this energy storage system, we have been able to bolster our commitment towards the decarbonization goals in India,” said Jurgen Fischer.
