NEW DELHI (Reuters) – Reliance Industries and Softbank Group-backed Ola Electric have won bids to win incentives under India’s $2.4 billion battery scheme, four sources told Reuters.
The Indian government last year completed a program designed to encourage companies to manufacture battery cells locally to build a domestic supply chain for clean transport and renewable energy storage to meet its decarbonization goals.
Ten companies have submitted bids totaling around 130 gigawatt hours (Gwh), of which four have won the contract, the sources said.
Reliance and Ola did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
