Ayana Renewable Power – a clean energy company we launched in 2018 – has today announced it has now reached 1 gigawatt (GW) of renewable energy operational capacity in India.
Ayana hit the milestone with the commissioning of a 300MW solar project in Bikaner, Rajasthan. The project is spread over 1,500 acres and is one of the largest the company has developed to date. The project has generated employment for close to 2000 people, is expected to meet the equivalent demand of 1.4 million end consumers and is estimated to
help avoid 6.23 million tonnes of annual CO2 emissions over 20 years.
Shivanand Nimbargi, Managing Director and CEO of Ayana, said: “We started Ayana with a vision to create significant renewable energy capacity across India, complementing it with the development of communities around us. With the support of our stakeholders, we have achieved this significant milestone of 1 GW (AC) operational renewable energy capacity, which is in line with our long-term goal to achieve 10 GW (AC) of renewable energy portfolio by 2025. We will continue to accelerate and contribute to meeting India’s energy transition plan of having an RE capacity of 500 GW (AC) by 2030.”
