The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has announced that it has issued new draft specifications for use of technology neutral lithium batteries in off-grid solar applications in different MNRE schemes. Stakeholders have been requested to submit comments/suggestions on the draft.

The MNRE is implementing various schemes for the promotion of off-grid solar applications such as solar street lights, solar study lamps, solar off-grid power packs. To ensure the quality of the systems installed, systems specifications have been issued and upgraded by the ministry from time to time.

Under the existing specifications for solar street lights and solar study lamps, Lithium Ferro Phosphate batteries (LFP) are being provided under the MNRE Schemes. System specifications for 12 W LED solar street lights and specifications for solar study lamps have been made available, which are to be followed by all vendors which are supplying equipments under the ministry’s different schemes.

The ministry then goes on to clarify that it has received representations from various stakeholders that specifications for these applications may be battery technology neutral and Lithium chemistries other than LFP may also be allowed to be installed with these systems.

Stakeholders in the off-grid solar applications and energy storage sectors have now been requested to provide comments/ suggestions on the above specifications latest by August 28, 2020.
