Andaman Islands Microgrid Development
This research & innovation programme focuses on developing and showcasing micro-grid pilots for sustainable and renewable local production, distribution and use of electricity on the Andaman Islands. The purpose is to contribute to a decreased need for imported fossil diesel and to replace this with sustainable power.
This programme is being developed and deployed jointly between the Swedish Energy Agency, Government of Sweden and the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, Government of India, the official Parties under the Memorandum of Understanding for collaboration on renewable energy. The parties have defined the objectives and goals, and jointly selected the executing teams from Sweden as well as the Indian project partners.
Below are the three different consortia participating in the Andaman Island microgrid programme:
Team PPAM Maksus consists of a number of energy system solution developers as well as technology suppliers, together representing a wide range of possibilities, ideas and competences.
The Pamoja consortium (previously lead by STRI) will perform a pilot on microgrid platforms. Combining biomass gasification, Stirling CHP, solar photovoltaic and wind turbines with storage, central cooling and hot water generation as well as an innovative approach to load control.
RISE, previously SP, has gathered a consortium to develop new energy solutions on the Andaman Islands. RISE brings with them many years of experience in the cutting-edge technologies that are relevant for the project.
