World's largest renewable energy park starts operations

20 February 2024

Adani Green Energy Ltd, India's largest renewable energy company and the second largest solar PV developer in the world, has put 551 MW of solar capacity into operation in Khavda, Gujarat, and is supplying power to the national grid.

AGEL achieved this milestone within 12 months of commencing work on the RE park, starting with the development of basic infrastructure, including roads and connectivity, and creating a self-sustaining social ecosystem. AGEL also transformed the challenging and barren terrain of the Rann of Kutch into a habitable environment for its 8000-strong workforce.

AGEL plans to develop 30 GW of renewable energy capacity at Khavda RE park. The planned capacity is expected to be in operation in the next five years, at which time it will be the largest renewable energy installation in the world.

With its proven expertise in developing largescale renewable projects, a robust supply chain network and technological prowess, AGEL believes it is best positioned to build this record-setting giga-scale plant with no parallel in the world's clean energy sector.

The region is endowed with one of the best wind and solar resources in the country. AGEL conducted extensive studies and deployed multiple innovative solutions to accelerate the development of the plant. In the process, it is supporting the development of an indigenous and sustainable supply chain.

Mr Gautam Adani, chairman of the Adani Group, commented: "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."
