Further, there are Three integrated renewable energy storage projects (IRESP) under pre-construction phase, the Pinnapuram IRESP, Saundatti IRESP and MP 30 Gandhi Sagar Standalone Pumped Storage Project (SPSP) with a total generation capacity of 8.7 GW with national grid connectivity. The IRESPs are expected to harness the power of solar and wind resources with digitally connected storage infrastructure to provide scheduled and flexible power to the grid. Greenko has license to build and operate multiple IRESPs across five states with a daily storage capacity of 40GWh.
The proposed Pinnapuram Integrated Renewable Energy Storage Project (IRESP) has been conceived as the world’s first and largest Gigawatt-Scale Integrated Project with solar, wind, and pumped storage components. All three components of Pinnapuram IRESP are in close vicinity of each other and therefore, power from all three components will be commonly pooled.
The IRESP consists of four key components which are as follows,
Saundatti Integrated Renewable Energy Storage Project (IRESP) has been envisaged to be a 2660 MW project comprising of 1260 MW of Standalone Pumped Storage Project (PSP), 1000 MW Solar and 400 MW Wind energy project. Thereby, Greenko is planning to harness PSP, solar and wind potential in the state of Karnataka to supply dispatchable and schedulable renewable energy to the national grid.
