The government approved the PLI scheme 'National Programme on Advanced Chemistry Cell (ACC) Battery Storage' for achieving manufacturing capacity of 50 Giga Watt Hour (GWh) for enhancing the country's manufacturing capabilities with a budgetary outlay of 18,100 crore.

The Heavy Industries Minister had earlier stated that the scheme received an encouraging response from local as well as global investors. The bids received was 2.6 times the manufacturing capacity to be awarded i.e. 50 Gwh. The scheme is expected to result in savings to the nation on account of reduction in import of crude oil to a significant extent and increase the share of renewable energy at the national grid level.

The scheme for ACC along with PLI scheme for the automotive sector and FAME is expected to the country to move towards an environmentally cleaner, sustainable, advanced and more efficient electric vehicles (EV) based system.
