The MoU paves way towards SGEL’s first venture into commercial & industrial segment.

SGEL will explore setting up of 4.5 GW of renewable energy projects in India including 2.5 – 3 GW of solar projects and 1.5 – 2 GW of wind projects over three phases, which shall ensure a supply of about 11,500 million units of renewable power on annual basis.

SGEL and AM Ammonia have agreed to explore an innovative commercial framework to ensure competitive tariff and adequate returns to SGEL including offering dollar denominated tariff. It has been agreed that the parties shall enter into a definitive agreement shortly so as to formalize the further course of action.

SGEL is currently handling a RE portfolio of about 7.2 GW under various stages of development (operation, construction and pre-construction).
