Want to know how we accelerate the future of energy for everyone?
We call it global x local.
You might hear other companies say they are both global and local. At AES, it’s true for us in a way that’s impossible for others to claim.
We are the only US-based global power company in the world, which gives us a unique set of knowledge to develop and deliver unique energy solutions.
Our deep local roots mean that we are completely integrated and invested in the communities where we work. We respect and understand the local culture to deliver greener energy solutions in the way that makes the best sense for each community.
Our global reach means we have the ability and responsibility to develop and deliver new solutions, and to do so at scale. We share the experiences we have so that we can bring innovation and a broader range of solutions from one market to another.
AES is the only global power company with a continuous presence in India since 1992, demonstrating its long-term commitment to the Indian power market.
In 2019, The AES Corporation and Mitsubishi Corporation inaugurated India’s first grid-scale battery-based energy storage system in Rohini, Delhi. The 10 megawatt (MW), 10 megawatt-hour (MWh) grid-connected system paves the way for wider adoption of grid-scale energy storage technology across India.
Battery-based energy storage enables electricity to be stored and then delivered within milliseconds, reducing instability of the electric grid and enabling more energy to be captured and delivered on demand. India has the ambitious vision of installing 450 GW of renewable energy generation by 2030. Battery-based energy storage provides the flexibility and agility to better integrate intermittent solar and wind energy resources into India’s electric grid and ensure high-quality power for consumers.
India is one of the largest solar markets in the world, expected to add more than 200 GW of new capacity within a decade. AES is bringing innovative solar technology to support India in achieving its decarbonization goals.
