India’s First Battery Storage Gigafactory to Start Operations in J&K
  • Good Enough Energy has announced that it will start operations at India’s first battery energy storage gigafactory in the northern region of Jammu and Kashmir by October 2023.
  • According to GoodEnough, the facility will help industries cut more than 5 million tons of carbon emissions in a year. India has set a goal to become net zero by 2070.
  • GoodEnough has already invested 1.5 billion rupees ($18.07 million) in the 7 gigawatts per hour (GWH) facility.
  • The company plans to spend an additional 3 billion rupees by 2027 to increase the capacity to 20 GWH.
  • These plans were revealed by GoodEnough’s founder, Akash Kaushik.
  • The Indian government is offering incentives worth $452 million to companies under a program to promote battery storage projects.
  • Battery storage systems enable the storage of energy from solar, wind, and other renewable sources. This stored energy can be released when needed, making renewable energy more reliable and consistent.
  • The establishment of India’s first battery storage gigafactory is a significant step towards meeting the country’s renewable energy targets and reducing its carbon footprint. The facility’s operations in Jammu and Kashmir will play a pivotal role in supporting the growth of the renewable energy sector in India.
