NIT FOR PROCUREMENT OF 5000 MW POWER ON “ROUND-THE-CLOCK” BASIS, FROM RE POWER PROJECTS, COMPLEMENTED WITH THERMAL POWER
The developments in renewable energy sector and the necessity to address the issues of intermittency, limited hours of supply and low capacity utilization of transmission infrastructure make case for “reverse bundling”, wherein high cost thermal power is allowed to be bundled with cheaper renewable energy, and is provided round-the-clock to the Discom.
Such bundling of RE power with thermal power can help in:
- Bringing down the overall cost of power supplied to buying utilities;
- Further penetration of renewable energy;
- Overcoming the intermittency issues of RE power
- Meeting the round-the-clock requirement of Discoms.
Accordingly, SECI hereby proposes to issue a tender for procurement 5000 MW power on “Round-the-Clock” basis, from RE Power Projects, complemented with power from thermal power projects, from Developers, on a “Build-Own-Operate” basis.
The RfS document will be issued in due course, and will be available for download from the ETS website, https://www.bharat-electronictender.com.
