Adani Green Energy Ltd (AGEL), an Adani Group company and the world’s largest solar power developer, aims to achieve 45 GW of renewable energy capacity by 2030, with the average tariff below the average power purchase cost (APPC) at the national level. The renewable energy developer has an operational renewable energy capacity of 5,410 MW (4,763 MW solar and 647 MW wind) as of September 30.
These announcements by AGEL fall under its Energy Compact Goals as part of COP26, primarily adhering to Sustainable Development Goal 7 (SDG 7).
Under SDG 7 goals to be achieved by 2030, the companies are to ensure universal access to affordable, reliable, and modern energy services and increase substantially the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix.
