Selecting an experienced company for the design, engineering, procurement fabrication & assembly, testing, supply, erection, commissioning & O&M of 40 [Forty] Distributed Grid Interactive photovoltaic Rooftop systems (PV Port) at several locations across Gandhinagar and Dwarka in Gujarat.

Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is a German Government enterprise that provides services in the field of international cooperation in sustainable development worldwide. GIZ under the project ‘Integration of Renewable Energies in the Indian Electricity System (I-RE)’ has initiated and executed several technical studies, trainings and pilot project implementation with an objective to support MNRE in the field of renewable energy planning and framework design for the dissemination of renewable energies, specifically distributed grid-connected PV. The project is a part of the International Climate Initiative (lKI) and was commissioned in December 2014 by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMU). The project is aiming of improving climate and energy policy, especially in urban development in India.

GIZ has been requested by MNRE to come out with a standardized GCRT solution which will be able to address the concerns of consumer, DISCOMs and other stakeholders in the country. In this regard, GIZ has developed the concept of a new type of rooftop solar power plant called “PV Port”. A PV Port system is a standard plug-n-play photovoltaic system having a system size of a minimum of 2 kWp with or without battery storage. At present more than 50 prototypes of PV Port & Store are being installed in India for the proof of concept.

Under this tender, 40 [Forty] PV port systems are proposed to be installed on sites across the cities of Gandhinagar and Dwarka. The aim is to demonstrate the features of the system to various stakeholders including SNA/ DISCOM/ Municipal Corporation which would would eventually assist and motivate them to move to the next phase i.e. up-scaling and commercialization of the PV port systems in the respective cities. Through this project we also aim to increase awareness amongst the public by installing the systems across high visibility areas.
