Adani Green Energy Achieves Milestone: Operationalises World's Largest Renewable Energy Park in Gujarat

In a groundbreaking achievement, Adani Green Energy Limited (AGEL), India’s largest renewable energy company, has successfully operationalised 1,000 MW of solar energy capacity at the Khavda Renewable Energy Park in Gujarat. This marks a significant milestone as the Khavda project now stands as the world’s largest Renewable Energy Park.

AGEL accomplished this feat in an impressive timeframe of less than 12 months from the commencement of work at Khavda. The project involved installing approximately 2.4 million solar modules, showcasing AGEL’s commitment to advancing India’s ambitious target of achieving 500 GW of non-fossil fuel capacity by 2030.

This achievement catapults AGEL’s operational capacity to 9,478 MW, further solidifying its position as one of the world’s leading renewable energy companies. The company is unwavering in its pursuit of reaching an ambitious 45,000 MW by 2030.

Spanning a vast 538 square kilometers of barren land, the Khavda project is expected to be completed over the next five years, generating over 15,200 green jobs. AGEL’s commitment to sustainable practices is evident in the deployment of waterless cleaning robots for the entire solar capacity at Khavda. This innovative solution addresses dust accumulation on panels, enhancing energy output while conserving water in the arid Kutch region.

Leveraging the project execution capabilities of Adani Infra, technological expertise of Adani New Industries Limited (ANIL), and operational excellence of AIMSL, AGEL is well-positioned to replicate its success from Khavda in constructing and operating India’s first and the world’s largest wind-solar hybrid cluster in Jaisalmer.

This achievement is not just a testament to AGEL’s commitment to clean energy but also reflects its dedication to sustainable growth. AGEL’s operating portfolio, spanning 12 states in India, is certified as ‘water positive’ for plants exceeding 200 MW capacity, ‘single-use plastic free’, and ‘zero waste-to-landfill,’ aligning with the company’s goal of achieving water neutrality and contributing to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 6. With a locked-in growth trajectory of up to 20.8 GW, AGEL continues to lead the way in the transition to clean and sustainable energy solutions.
