“Tata Power Renewables with its broad and deep portfolio of next-generation renewables businesses is well poised to further solidify its position as an industry leader. The completion of ₹4,000 crore ($525 million) worth of capital infusion into our renewables business will fuel the next level of growth and help us play a pivotal role in India’s efforts to secure greater energy stability through low carbon solutions for a sustainable future,” said Praveer Sinha, CEO and MD, Tata Power.
India is one of the world’s largest renewable energy markets and has recorded the fastest growing renewable energy supply with over 60 per cent new capacity added over the past four years.
The installed renewables capacity is expected to grow from 175 GW currently to 500 GW by 2030 to satisfy India’s local energy demand driven by GDP growth. This will also contribute to the government’s decarbonisation ambition, as well as support the macro energy transition trends in the country.
