Adani Green begins generation from the world’s largest renewable energy park 


Adani Green Energy Ltd (AGEL), the second largest solar PV developer in the world, has operationalized 551 MW solar capacity in Khavda, Gujarat, by supplying power to the national grid.

AGEL achieved this milestone within 12 months of commencing work on the Khavda RE park, starting with the development of basic infrastructure, including roads and connectivity, and creating a self-sustaining social ecosystem. AGEL also transformed the challenging and barren terrain of the Rann of Kutch into a habitable environment for its 8,000-strong workforce.

AGEL plans to develop 30 GW of renewable energy capacity at this RE park. The planned capacity is expected to be operationalized in the next five years. When completed, the Khavda RE park will be the largest renewable energy installation in the world.

The 30 GW Khavda RE park is expected to generate 81 billion units of clean electricity and power 16.1 million homes each year, helping to offset 58 million tons of CO2 emissions per year.

Khavda, located in the Kutch district of Gujarat, is a promising location for wind and solar energy projects. The region witnesses 2,060 kWh/m2 of high solar irradiation and is also blessed with one of the best wind resources availability in India with speeds of 8 meters per second.

AGEL conducted extensive studies and deployed multiple innovative solutions to accelerate the development of the plant. In the process, it is supporting the development of an indigenous and sustainable supply chain.

“Adani Green Energy is creating one of the world’s most extensive renewable energy ecosystems for solar and wind,” said Gautam Adani, chairman, Adani Group. “Through bold and innovative projects like the Khavda RE plant, AGEL continues to set higher global benchmarks and rewrite the world’s planning and execution standards for giga-scale renewable energy projects. This milestone is a validation of the Adani Group’s commitment and leading role in accelerating India’s equitable clean energy transition journey towards its ambitious goals of 500 GW of renewable energy capacity by 2030 and carbon neutrality.”

At the Khavda RE Park, AGEL is deploying India’s largest onshore wind turbine generator of 5.2 MW capacity, bifacial solar PV modules, and horizontal single-axis tracker systems. It will be leveraging its state-of-the-art Energy Network Operation Centre (ENOC) platform with AI/ ML integration to enable real-time automated monitoring.

AGEL develops, owns, and operates utility-scale grid-connected solar, wind and hybrid renewable power plants. With a locked-in growth trajectory up to 20.8 GW, it currently has an operating renewable portfolio of over 9 GW, the largest in India, spread across 12 states. AGEL has developed several landmark renewable energy power plants, the latest being the world’s largest wind-solar hybrid power cluster of 2,140 Megawatt (MW) in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan. The company targets 45 GW of installed RE capacity by 2030 aligned to India’s decarbonization goals.
