Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Praveer Sinha, CEO and MD, Tata Power, said, "We are happy to collaborate with Tata AutoComp for Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS).

We shall integrate these BESS at our renewable sites to enable round-the-clock supply of clean power and ensure a speedier green energy transition.”
Arvind Goel, Chairman, Tata AutoComp said “Tata AutoComp has always been a pioneer in introducing cutting edge technology to its customers. We are leveraging our knowledge in the automotive domain to serve emerging markets which have a synergy in technology. We will supply these BESS to Tata Power, which is a leading integrated Energy company of the Tata Group.”
Spread over 22,227 square feet, the newly inaugurated BESS facility will have a capacity of 6 GWH and will serve the emerging energy storage industry. Tata AutoComp had earlier entered into an agreement with Tata Power Solar Systems Ltd, a subsidiary of Tata Power Renewable Energy Limited, to supply BESS for its renewable projects.
