Reliance New Energy Limited, Ola Electric Mobility and , the three selected bidders, signed the Program Agreement under Production Linked Incentive (PLI) scheme for Advanced Chemistry Cell () Battery Storage on Thursday.

These companies will receive incentives under India’s ₹ 18,100 crore program. In addition to the capacities allocated by the Ministry of Heavy Industries under the PLI Program, private players are expected to create battery manufacturing capacity to the tune of~95 GWh, the Ministry of Heavy Industries said in a press release on Friday.

In May 2021, the Union Cabinet had approved a National Programme on

This will be favorable to EV ecosystem and energy storage market as it will support the demand for EVs and renewable and attract investment in this sector,” Union Cabinet Minister for Heavy Industries Dr. Mahendra Nath Pandey said.

A total of 10 bids were received from companies with a manufacturing capacity of 128 GWh under the PLI Scheme of ACC Battery Storage.
