JSW Energy enters pact with GE Renewable Energy for supply of wind turbinesJSW Energy has signed a contract with GE Renewable Energy for supply of 810 MW of onshore wind turbines for its under-construction pipeline of 2.5 GW of renewable projects.

The supply of the turbines will start by Q2/2022. These turbines will produce enough green energy to meet the annual electricity requirements of over 2.1 million households in the country.

The company has set a target to reach 20 GW of power generation capacity by 2030, by which time the renewables portfolio will have a 85 percent share.

The project being implemented in Tamil Nadu is the first large-scale wind power project.

JSW Energy has targeted a 50 percent reduction in its carbon footprint by 2030 and to achieve Carbon Neutrality by 2050 by transitioning towards renewable energy.

About 2.5 GW of renewable projects are currently under-construction, which includes 2.2 GW of wind and solar projects to be commissioned in 18-24 months, while the 240 MW Kutehr hydro project in Himachal Pradesh is expected to be commissioned in 36-40 months.

With the commissioning of these projects, the company’s total generation capacity will increase to seven GW, with renewable energy contributing over 50 percent.
