India's First Battery Energy Storage Gigafactory to Combat Carbon Emissions

GoodEnough Energy announced plans to launch India's inaugural battery energy storage gigafactory in Jammu and Kashmir by October.


This facility seeks to decrease around 5 million tonnes of carbon emissions yearly, in line with India's goal of reaching net zero emissions by 2070. With an initial expenditure of 1.5 billion rupees ($18.07 million), GoodEnough intends to increase the facility's capacity from 7 to 20 gigawatts per hour (GWH) by 2027, totaling 3 billion rupees.

The effort is critical to India's goal of expanding renewable energy capacity to 500 gigawatts (GW) by 2030. To promote such projects, the Indian government is offering $452 million in incentives. Battery energy storage enables the storage and utilisation of energy provided by renewable sources such as solar and wind, contributing to a sustainable energy ecology.
