The Bengal Government, through the Power Department, is going to implement battery energy storage systems (BESS) on a pilot basis.
A battery energy storage system is a system which stores energy through the use of a battery technology with a purpose of using it in future.
The project has been structured into two phases, with a total duration of three years. The project would be implemented in association with The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI).
Phase I would constitute the research work leading to the development of guidelines in this regard. Phase II would facilitate integration of a BESS as a pilot installation at the distribution level and assist the power distribution utility in the implementation of the pilot project.
