NTPC partners NIIF for renewable energy and power distribution projects


India’s largest power producer NTPC has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with government-backed National Investment and Infrastructure Fund (NIIF) to explore investment opportunities in renewable energy and power distribution, among other areas of mutual interest in India.

NIIF is India’s first infrastructure-specific investment fund that was set up by the Government of India. 

This partnership aims to bring together NTPC’s technical expertise and NIIF’s ability to raise capital and bring in global best practices by leveraging its existing relationships with leading players.

With a total installed capacity of 62,110 MW, NTPC Group has 70 power stations comprising 24 coal, seven combined cycle gas/liquid fuel, one hydro, 13 renewables along with 25 subsidiary and JV power stations.

NTPC aims to have nearly 30 GW of its overall power generation capacity from renewable energy sources by 2032.

NIIF Limited manages over US$ 4.3 billion of equity capital commitments across its three funds—Master Fund, Fund of Funds and Strategic Opportunities Fund—each with its distinct investment strategy. It is a collaborative investment platform for international and Indian investors, anchored by the Government of India. 

NIIFL invests across asset classes such as infrastructure, private equity and other diversified sectors in India, to generate attractive risk-adjusted returns for its investors. 

The NIIF Master Fund is the largest infrastructure fund in the country and invests in core infrastructure sectors such as transportation and energy.
