At this year’s RE Invest, currently taking place in Greater Noida, just outside of Delhi, Alok Kumar, principal secretary, Department of Energy and Additional Sources of Energy, government of Uttar Pradesh (UP) announced that the recent 500 MW grid-connected solar capacity tendered by the UP New and Renewable Energy Development Agency (UPNEDA) was oversubscribed by 250 MW.

A reverse auction will now be held on October 9. The capacity is part of the previous 1 GW tendered capacity, which was oversubscribed by around 800 MW, but cancelled due to high tariffs.

He added that the UP government is also planning a 150 MW grid-connected floating solar PV plant at Rihand Dam in Sonbhadra, and will establish a green corridor.
