Worlds Biggest Solar Power Plant Has Installing In India (5 GW)

The scenic Ladakh region of the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, known as the "roof of the world, "could soon host the world's largest single-location PV plant.

India has resumed its competition with China to host the largest solar park in the world and the planned Ladakh solar project could bring the crown back to South Asia. According to US insurance provider SolarInsure, the Datong Solar Power Project in China–with a projected capacity of 3 GW–has the potential to become the world's largest single-site solar photovoltaic project once completed by June 2017. The project Ladakh is expected to be completed by 2023, with plenty of sunlight and clear air, making it unusually suitable for solar technologies. 

The power generated from the 5 GW PV plant in Leh district will be transmitted for consumption by the Kaithal district in the state of Haryana along a 900 km stretch of the Leh-Manali road. A further 2,5 GW solar project in the Kargil district will be added to provide electricity to illuminate the plains and reduce the dependence on diesel generators for a population that is still cut for about half a year.

In addition to the development of the power transmission and evacuation infrastructure, the 7.5 GW Jammu & Kashmir tender encourages developers to add storage. Developers are encouraged to explore various forms of storage technology for innovative and efficient use of the transmission evacuation infrastructure, including battery, molten salts, pumped storage or a combination of them.
