Project type: Renewable energy
Located across three districts – Jaisalmer, Rajkot and Surendranagar – this project consists of 242 turbines with a combined capacity of over 190 MW. The country’s rapid population growth has meant increasing pressure on electricity generating capacity, of which only 13% is currently supplied by renewable energy. The project displaces electricity which would have otherwise been drawn primarily from fossil fuel power stations, also improving local air quality while avoiding solid waste generation associated with coal-fired power plants. Carbon finance is essential to support India’s green growth agenda and achieve the country’s installed capacity target of 175 GW by 2022.
In addition to delivering approximately 350,000 tonnes of emissions reductions annually to help take urgent action to combat climate change (SDG 13), the project delivers a number of other sustainable development benefits. These include:
