Adani Green Energy Ltd (AGEL) has surpassed 10,000 megawatts (MW), or 10 gigawatts (GW), of operational portfolio of renewable energy, the company said on Wednesday

AGEL’s portfolio includes 7,393MW solar, 1,401MW wind, and 2,140MW wind-solar hybrid capacity. The production of 10,934MW renewable energy will power about 5.8 million homes and avoid about 21 million tons of CO2 emissions annually, the company said. 

“We are proud to be India’s first das hazari (hindi for 10,000) in the renewables space,” group chairman Gautam Adani said. 

“In less than a decade, Adani Green Energy has not just envisioned a greener future but has actualized it, growing from a mere idea to explore clean energy to achieving a phenomenal 10,000MW in installed capacity. This achievement is a demonstration of the rapidity and scale at which the Adani Group aims to facilitate India’s transition to clean, reliable and affordable energy,” Adani said. 

The achievement was unlocked as the company operationalized cumulative capacity of 1,000MW solar energy at the world’s largest renewable energy park at Khavda in Gujarat, launched another 126MW wind power capacity of a 300MW project in Gujarat, and added a 180MW solar power plant at Devikot in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan. to its portfolioall in March. 

AGEL said the 10,000MW milestone renewable energy represents the largest greenfield expansion in the sector, forming about 11% of India’s installed utility-scale solar and wind capacity. Its renewable portfolio is spread across 12 states in India. 

It contributes over 15% of India’s utility-scale solar installations and creates over 3,200 direct green jobs. 

The Adani Group subsidiary aims to produce 45,000MW, or 45GW, renewable energy by 2030.

The massive renewable energy project of 30,000MW on barren land at Khavda in Kutch, Gujarat, is key to its goal. Built across 538 sq. km, it is five times the size of Paris and almost as large as Mumbai city, according to AGEL. 

The company has operationalized 2,000MW cumulative solar capacity within 12 months of commencing work, with a target of producing 30,000MW before 2030. 

“In our drive towards 45,000MW by 2030, we are building the world’s largest renewable energy plant in Khavdaa 30,000MW project unparalleled on the global stage. AGEL is not just setting benchmarks for the world but redefining them,” Adani said.
