Adani Green Energy Surpasses 10,000 MW RE Capacity, First in India

Adani Green Energy Ltd. (AGEL) has become the first company in India to surpass 10,000 MW of operational Renewable Energy (RE) capacity. AGEL made this claim in its stock filing dated 3rd April 2024.

Adani Green’s operational portfolio comprises 7,393 MW of solar power, 1,401 MW of wind power, and 2,140 MW of hybrid power generation capacity. As per Adani Green, this 10,934 MW operational RE generation capacity “…will power more than 5.8 million homes and avoid about 21 million tonnes of CO2 emissions annually”.

Commenting on this development, Mr. Gautam Adani, Chairman of the Adani Group, said, “We are proud to be India’s first ‘das hazari’ in the renewables space. In less than a decade, Adani Green Energy has not just envisioned a greener future but has actualised it, growing from a mere idea to explore clean energy to achieving a phenomenal 10,000 MW in installed capacity”. He added that AGEL has set a target of having 45,000 MW of RE generation by 2030, and that the company is in the process of developing a 30,000 MW solar park at Khavda, Gujarat in this direction.
