Making India Energy Secure
With depleting fossil fuel reserves and environmental concerns, renewable energy appears to be the long-term sustainable solution. Indian Govt. has set a target to install 175GW of Renewable power capacity by 2022. Out of that, 100 GW will be Solar PV and 60 GW will be Wind power.
In line with this, the Company invested in a 40 MW solar power plant in Bitta (Gujarat) marking Adani Enterprises’ major extension into the renewable energy sector (December 2011).
The Company has since raised its benchmark: its 648 MW solar power plant in Tamil Nadu is the largest single location solar power plant in the world, commissioned in September 2016.
The Company has also forayed into Wind Power and has commissioned 12MW of Wind Power in Madhya Pradesh by March 31, 2016. Incremental 100MW of Wind Power projects are under various stages of construction in high wind states of Andhra Pradesh and Rajasthan.
The Company has set a target to install 10,000 MW of Renewable Power capacity by 2022.
Clean, Green, Sustainable
Simply put, Solar Energy is the energy generated from the Sun. This energy can then be used as either heat or thermal energy or as light or photovoltaic energy via a solar cell which can power everyday applications like a calculator & for that matter, even an entire city.
