Vedanta Invites EoI from Power Producers for 500 MW Green Energy

Vedanta Ltd., an Indian mining major, has invited Expression of Interest (EoI) from Hybrid Power producers in Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Odisha for procuring 500 MW of Green Energy for its operations. This information was given by the company in its press release dated 29th September 2022.

Previously, the company had secured 580 MW of Round-the-Clock RE from Serentica Renewables for its operations. Therefore, upon acquiring this additional 500 MW of hybrid power, Vedanta will have successfully sourced over 1 GW of green energy.

Vedanta’s subsidiary, Hindustan Zinc Ltd. had signed an agreement earlier in September with Serentica Renewables for sourcing RE supply.

Vedanta has stated that this is a step toward achieving 2.5 GW of Renewable Energy (RE) by 2030 for its use.
