Renewable energy is central to the carbon-neutral energy transition
ENGIE builds, develops, and operates large grid-scale solar and wind projects in India. The clean energy generated from the projects is supplied to the states and centre under a long-term Power Purchase Agreement of up to 25 years.
With a worldwide portfolio of 34.4GW of positive, clean energy solutions, renewables already constitute a quarter of ENGIE’s global power generation capacity. Solar and wind contribute 10GW of the total portfolio and, with the government of India promoting clean energy, ENGIE is determined to remain the energy partner of choice.
ENGIE’s renewable portfolio in India comprises of 17 wind and solar plants generating more than 1.5GW of clean power. With facilities in Punjab and Rajasthan in the northwest producing 302MW, Gujarat in the west producing 200MW, Telangana and Andhra Pradesh on the east coast contributing a further 410MW, and 101MW from Uttar Pradesh in the north-eastern region; utility-scale dedicated PV solar facilities in the sub-continent account for more than 1GW
ENGIE’s dual wind and solar plant in Gujarat produces 30MW. ENGIE’s onshore wind farm at Tamil Nadu is already generating 52MW, with a further 250MW capacity expected upon completion of a second phase, which is currently under construction.
ENGIE has mastered Engineering, Procurement, Construction, and Operations & Maintenance by implementing various projects in the country. We are now looking to leverage our global and local expertise in open access, floating solar, and hybrid power generation.
We can make massive gains and ultimately achieve a carbon-neutral world by…
- Creating and adding clean, renewable energy to the grid through the power of the wind and sun along with storage advances
- Investing in continuous innovation in renewable energy
- Partnering with our customers to achieve their green energy goals through renewable and hybrid energy solutions
The Raghanesda Solar Plant (290MWp) in the state of Gujarat, was commissioned in July 2021. The 25-year Power Purchase Agreement was tendered by GUVNL (Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam Limited). ENGIE won the tender in August 2019, and the Implementation Support Agreement was signed in October 2019 with GPCL (Gujarat Power Corporation Limited).
The 252 MW wind power project is in Tuticorin, Tamil Nadu. ENGIE signed a 25-year PPA with Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) in June 2018. Spread over 1250 acres of land, the project has 126 WTGs from Vestas.
