JSW has secured 3.4 gigawatt-hours (GWh) of energy storage capacity, which includes battery energy storage systems and a hydro-pumped storage project.

The award follows its recent procurement of 500MW of wind capacity from SECI.

The wind capacity award was part of SECI’s tranche 16, which aimed to establish 1.35GW of ISTS-connected wind power projects.

The bid also offered the possibility of increasing the awarded capacity by 700MW, bringing its total capacity to 1.02GW.

JSW anticipates an increase in its operational generation capacity to 9.8GW during 2024, up from the current 7.2GW.

Its strategic plan includes reaching a generation capacity of 20GW and an energy storage capacity of 40GWh by 2030.

In line with global sustainability goals, JSW Energy has committed to a 50% reduction in its carbon footprint by 2030 and aims to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.
