Project: Mobile Substation and Grid Storage System

Acronym MOBISUB (Reference Number: 99187)
Duration 01/10/2020 - 30/06/2023
Project Topic MOBISUB is researching, designing, developing, testing and piloting a dual function mobile sub-station maintenance system which can also be deployed as a modular, grid-scale storage asset. The project will develop and pilot a containerised solution, based on cutting edge battery technology (including research into both flow and solid state options) along with hardware, software and test protocols to test the dual function system in situ in India. The project aims to show the potential of the system to support a dual use business case at scale in the Indian market. The dual use case mitigates the weak business case in the Indian market for a grid scale storage. Developing these assets as part of a substation maintenance strategy however both meets this immediate need and creates a scalable storage platform for a smarter more flexible grid which can help meet the need for storage and flexibility as renewable assets increase and India moves toward electric vehicles over the next decade.
