India’s wind solar hybrid (WSH) project capacity is poised to grow from 310 MW at present to about 9,500 MW by 2025. WSH projects have garnered significant interest in recent years due to growing demand for firm green power from both DISCOMs and corporate consumers. WSH projects also promise greater transmission efficiency and lower effective cost in comparison to their standalone counterparts.
