eC2: Small Scale Solar PV Portfolio: Assessment of battery storage options

Deadline: 11-Jul-2019 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.) index

Locating smaller, utility-scale facilities closer to population centers can reduce reliance on long transmission lines that are vulnerable to damage during storms. It also means that if one facility goes down, others are still able to operate. This strategy of developing decentralized generation has already been utilized in more developed economies and is particularly relevant in areas that are prone to natural disasters. Batteries can provide backup power in the case of outages caused by storms and help utilities meet spikes in power demand. IFC is assessing the development of small solar PV sites and assessing whether battery storage could be included as part of the solar PV plants to offset the intermittency and provide other benefits. This consultancy is focused on the analysis of the battery storage options.
