Adani Green Breaks Ground With World's Largest Renewable Energy Park; Operationalizes First 551 MW Solar Capacity At Khavda

Ahmedabad (Gujarat) [India] : Adani Green Energy Limited (AGEL), renewable energy company and the world's second-largest solar PV developer, has initiated power generation from the world's largest renewable energy park in Khavda, Gujarat.

According to a press release, with the commencement of operations at the first 551 MW solar capacity, AGEL has embarked on a transformative journey towards clean energy generation, marking a milestone in India's renewable energy landscape.

AGEL's swift achievement within 12 months of commencing work on the Khavda RE park underscores its unparalleled commitment to advancing renewable energy infrastructure.

The project's inception involved the development of crucial infrastructure, including roads and connectivity, and the creation of a sustainable social ecosystem, transforming the challenging terrain of the Rann of Kutch into a thriving environment for its workforce of 8,000.

Strategically positioned to leverage the region's abundant wind and solar resources, the Khavda RE park is poised to emerge as a global leader in renewable energy generation.

AGEL's plans include developing 30 GW of renewable energy capacity at the site, making it the largest renewable energy installation worldwide.

Upon completion, the Khavda RE park is projected to power 16.1 million homes annually, setting a new benchmark for giga-scale clean energy projects.

Gautam Adani, Chairman of the Adani Group, expressed pride in AGEL's achievement, stating, "Adani Green Energy is creating one of the world's most extensive renewable energy ecosystems for solar and wind. Through bold and innovative projects like the Khavda RE plant, AGEL continues to set higher global benchmarks and rewrite the world's planning and execution standards for giga-scale renewable energy projects. This milestone is a validation of the Adani Group's commitment and leading role in accelerating India's equitable clean energy transition journey towards its ambitious goals of 500 GW of renewable energy capacity by 2030 and carbon neutrality."

AGEL's commitment to sustainable growth extends beyond power generation to encompass indigenous and sustainable supply chains and environmental stewardship.

Extensive studies and innovative solutions have been deployed to accelerate the project's development, including geotechnical investigations, seismic studies, and environmental assessments.

The project showcases AGEL's dedication to advancing India's renewable energy goals while fostering economic growth and environmental sustainability.

The Khavda RE park represents a paradigm shift in India's clean energy transition journey, aligning with the nation's ambitious target of achieving 500 GW of renewable energy capacity by 2030 and carbon neutrality.
