Adani Green Energy has signed an agreement with Sterling & Wilson to acquire its 75 MW of operating solar projects for around INR 446 crore. The projects are located in Telangana.
The Indian developer has signed an agreement with the Canadian developer to acquire its 50 MW Telangana solar project at an enterprise value of around INR 317 crore.
The developer has secured the revolving fund from 12 international banks. It would use the amount to initially finance its 1.69 GW hybrid portfolio of solar and wind projects to be set up in the Indian state of Rajasthan.
The Group’s renewable energy business (Adani Green Energy) has a market value of US$15.6 billion, which is 40% more than India’s largest thermal power generator NTPC—a company with 22 times as much capacity. The RE business is of serious global investor interest, but also materially exposed to the wider Group’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) standing. By committing to phased closure of coal plants, Adani Group could lower the risk to global capital access while aligning with the government’s vision for energy independence through fast-growing reliance on renewables.
Acme Solar ranks eighth with 2.556 GW of cumulative generation capacity to date, and Adani Green Energy (2.421 GW) ninth in the list, which has First Solar and Canadian Solar on top. Azure Power, Tata Power, Greenko Energy and NTPC are the other Indian developers among the top 36.
The Indian developer formed the joint venture to allow Total Solar Singapore—French oil and gas giant Total’s renewable arm—acquire half the stake in its 2.1 GW of current operational PV portfolio in India.
The purchased solar portfolio is relatively young, with average remaining power purchase agreement life of around 21 years.
As of June 30, the country installed 90.5 GW of renewable energy capacity from solar (utility-scale and rooftop), wind and biomass resources.
India’s largest private-sector thermal power producer—which ranked as the sixth-largest solar player globally in 2019—has climbed to the top spot following a Solar Energy Corporation of India (Seci) award to develop 8 GW of Indian solar project capacity.
