AGEL achieved this milestone within 12 months of commencing work on the 551MW Khavda Renewable Energy Park, transforming the challenging and barren terrain of the Rann of Kutch into a habitable environment for its 8,000-strong workforce.

Despite its challenging terrain, the region is endowed with one of the best wind and solar resources in the country, which makes it ideal for giga-scale renewables development.

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

“Adani Green Energy is creating one of the world’s most extensive renewable energy ecosystems for solar and wind,” Adani Group chairman Gautam Adani said.

“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.
