Adani Green Energy India’s First Company to Surpass 10,000 MW Renewable Energy Operational Portfolio

Last Updated on 04th April 2024

Adani Green Energy Limited (AGEL), one of the top 10 renewable energy companies in India, has surpassed 10,000 megawatts (MW) of operational renewable energy portfolio.


The company's operational portfolio comprises 7393 MW of solar, 1401 MW of wind, and 2140 MW of wind-solar hybrid capacity. This milestone underscores AGEL's commitment to its goal of reaching 45,000 MW of renewable energy by 2030. The current operational portfolio, totaling 10,934 MW, will provide power to more than 5.8 million homes and prevent approximately 21 million metric tons of CO2 emissions annually.

As part of its ambitious plans, Adani green energy Limited aims to achieve 45 GW of renewable energy by 2030. The company is currently developing the world's largest renewable energy project, with a capacity of 30,000 MW, located in Khavda, Kutch, Gujarat. Spanning 538 sq km, this project is five times the size of Paris and nearly the size of Mumbai city. AGEL has successfully commissioned a cumulative solar capacity of 2,000 MW within just 12 months of starting work on the project.

Gautam Adani, Chairman of the Adani Group, expressed pride in AGEL's achievements, stating that the company has evolved from a mere concept to becoming India's foremost player in the renewable energy sector, reaching an impressive 10,000 MW of installed capacity in under a decade.


AGEL is pioneering the use of innovative technology, efficient execution capabilities, digitization, a robust supply chain network, and long-term infrastructure financing, all complemented by sustainable practices. Together, these factors drive the clean energy transition and decarbonization on a significant scale.


Some of the projects in AGEL’s portfolio include:


648 MW Kamuthi Solar Power Project

Kamuthi Solar power project


The Kamuthi Solar Power Project in Tamil Nadu, India, is a remarkable example of India's commitment to renewable energy. With a capacity of 648 MW, it is one of the world's largest single-location solar power projects. The estimated cost of the project is around USD 540 million.


The project spans an impressive 2,500 acres, equivalent to about 950 Olympic-sized football fields. It comprises 2.5 million solar modules, 380,000 foundations, 30,000 tonnes of structure, 6,000 km of cables, 576 inverters, and 154 transformers. Nearly 8,500 devoted workers completed the entire facility in a record eight months.


The Kamuthi Solar Power Project is now fully operational and connected with the 400 kV substation of Tantransco. It powers 265,000 homes, making a significant contribution to India's renewable energy sector. The project's success demonstrates the potential for large-scale solar power generation and sets a precedent for future renewable energy projects in India and around the world.

2,140 MW Renewable Power Project in Jaisalmer 

Adani Green Energy has a significant operational portfolio in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan, with a capacity of 2,140 MW. This portfolio is part of AGEL's larger operational portfolio of 10,934 MW, which includes 7,393 MW of solar, 1,401 MW of wind, and 2,140 MW of wind-solar hybrid capacity.


The Jaisalmer facility is one of the largest renewable energy projects in India. It includes a combination of solar and wind plants, utilizing advanced renewable technologies like bifacial solar PV modules and horizontal single-axis tracker (HSAT) systems for maximum electricity generation.


This plant is designed to deliver a capacity utilization factor (CUF) of a minimum of 50%, the highest CUF of any renewable project in India. It harnesses the potential of renewable energy by resolving the intermittency of generation, providing a more reliable solution to meet the rising power demand.


AGEL's commitment to sustainable practices is evident in its operations. The company's operating portfolio is certified as 'single-use plastic-free', 'zero waste-to-landfill', and 'water-positive for plants with more than 200 MW capacity'.

30,000 MW Khavda Renewable Energy Park


The Khavda Renewable Energy Park, located in Kutch, Gujarat, is a testament to India's commitment to renewable energy. With a planned capacity of 30,000 MW, it is set to become the world's largest renewable energy project.


The largest renewable energy company in India is developing the park, Adani Green Energy Limited (AGEL). The project spans a staggering 538 square kilometers, five times the size of Paris. It is being built on barren land, making optimal use of space that would otherwise remain unused.


The park is divided into two zones: a hybrid park zone accommodating wind and solar power plants of 24,800 MW capacity, and an exclusive wind power zone. This strategic division allows for the efficient harnessing of both solar and wind energy.

The region is ideal for such a project, witnessing high solar irradiation of around 2,060 kWh/m2 and wind speeds of approximately 8 meters per second. These conditions make it one of the best wind resources in India.


As of March 2024, AGEL had operationalized 1,000 MW of the planned 30,000 MW. This involved installing approximately 2.4 million solar modules. The project is expected to be completed in the next five years.


The park is expected to generate around 81 billion units of clean electricity annually. This will power over 16.1 million households with clean energy, equivalent to the number of homes in entire countries like Poland or Canada. It will also create over 15,200 green jobs.
