For a long time, India’s National Capital Region (NCR) has been grappling with severe air pollution issues, with one of the key contributors to this environmental crisis being the widespread use of diesel generator sets. These generators’ harmful emissions and pollutants have prompted the authorities to take swift action. As a result, diesel generator sets have been banned in Delhi NCR, with only limited exemptions granted for emergencies.
Amid this ban and the growing awareness of the need for eco-friendly alternatives, Su-vastika Lithium Battery-based Energy Storage Systems (BESS) have emerged as a pollution-free and sustainable alternative for meeting energy needs. In this article, we will explore the reasons behind the diesel generator ban in Delhi NCR and why Su-vastika Lithium Battery-based BESS solutions represent a promising path toward a cleaner and more sustainable energy future for the region.
Advantages of BESS Compared to DG Set
Instant Power Backup:
BESS offers immediate power backup without interruptions or jerks, contrasting with DG sets, which experience downtime during power outages. BESS operates seamlessly and automatically, while DG systems take about a minute to restart power generation through the generator.
Low Operating Costs:
Running a diesel generator can cost three times or more than the power supplied by the utility company. ESS stands out as a cost-effective solution due to its battery backup. Additionally, BESS achieves reduced power consumption per unit of electricity produced, especially at 50% or 70% loading, in contrast to diesel generators, where the cost remains unaffected by reduced loads due to minimal variation in diesel consumption.
BESS boasts an impressive 50-year shelf life, surpassing the 10-year lifespan of diesel generators. Furthermore, ESS batteries can last between 7 to 10 years, resulting in substantial operational cost savings.
Ease of Maintenance and Cost-Efficiency:
Diesel generators involve moving parts and require a battery for automatic startup, necessitating service every 300 hours or even more frequently. Additionally, an attendant is needed to refuel and maintain a DG set. In contrast, BESS requires minimal maintenance since it lacks moving parts, eliminating the need for an attendant.
BESS systems can incorporate solar charging, allowing for cost recovery within 2 to 3 years. Solar panels, with a lifespan of up to 25 years, significantly reduce the cost of power generation. Even in areas with grid power availability, this system seamlessly switches to solar and battery power, resulting in substantial electricity cost savings.
