Mongolia: First Utility-Scale Energy Storage Project

Sovereign (Public) Project | 53249-001 Status: Active

The project is aligned with the government medium and long term renewable energy target: (i) 100 MW of power storage installed to the CES to increase renewable energy power generation and reduce coal fired power generation in the Medium Term National Energy Policy (2018 2023) and (ii) renewable energy capacity increased to 20% of total generation capacity by 2023 and 30% by 2030 in the State Policy on Energy (2015 2030) and in Mongolia Nationally Determined Contribution in 2015. The proposed project is included in the Country Operations Business Plan for Mongolia (2020- 2021). The outcome targets of the proposed project are (i) 610 GWh of annual renewable power evacuated; (ii) 44 GWh of annual imported peak time electricity reduced; and (iii) at least 650,000 tons of CO2 emissions avoided per year.

These outcome will be achieved through the following outputs: (i) large scale advanced battery storage system installed, and (ii) institutional and organizational capacity enhanced.

Description

The project is aligned with the government medium and long term renewable energy target: (i) 100 MW of power storage installed to the CES to increase renewable energy power generation and reduce coal fired power generation in the Medium Term National Energy Policy (2018 2023) and (ii) renewable energy capacity increased to 20% of total generation capacity by 2023 and 30% by 2030 in the State Policy on Energy (2015 2030) and in Mongolia Nationally Determined Contribution in 2015. The proposed project is included in the Country Operations Business Plan for Mongolia (2020- 2021). The outcome targets of the proposed project are (i) 610 GWh of annual renewable power evacuated; (ii) 44 GWh of annual imported peak time electricity reduced; and (iii) at least 650,000 tons of CO2 emissions avoided per year.

These outcome will be achieved through the following outputs: (i) large scale advanced battery storage system installed, and (ii) institutional and organizational capacity enhanced.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The proposed project aims to install large scale battery storage system in the central energy system (CES) grid to absorb fluctuating renewable energy electricity which is otherwise to be curtailed to meet growing power demand in the CES.
Impact Renewable energy capacity increased to 20% of total generation capacity by 2023 and 30% by 2030.
