Notes by Narsi

"Battery Energy Storage Systems with capacity of 4,000 MWH will be supported with Viability Gap Funding and a detailed framework for Pumped Storage Projects will also be formulated."

These two caught my eye from among the proposals in the Budget, and the former especially, if implemented well, could make a big dfference to the penetration of solar & wind power, both intermittent with the need for storage to make them more reliable and industry ready
