Wind-Solar Hybrid Framework

EVI has developed a detailed design framework for identifying and developing wind solar hybrids in India. We have estimated overall potential for Gujarat, and also completed detailed assessments for a hybrid site in another state for a leading PSU in India. When implemented this would be a first of its kind installation in India. We have outlined an approach for optimizing capacity, and mix based on resource availability and several other ESG factors which can help reduce development risk of such sites. Our assessments reveal the potential for a number of benefits from wind solar hybrids including improved generation per unit of land, better resource utilisation of resource rich sites, potential for improving transmission system utilization for RE systems, lower peak to average ratio for RE plants, and potential for capital and operational cost reduction through using shared infrastructure.
