In what marks a significant leap for India’s renewable energy sector, Adani Green Energy Ltd has secured a massive $1.4 billion loan to finance the establishment of the world’s largest renewable energy park.
What Happened: As per Bloomberg’s report on Tuesday, the substantial loan was obtained from a consortium of eight international banks, which includes banking giants like BNP Paribas, Rabobank, and DBS Bank Ltd. This announcement spurred a 20% spike in the company’s shares.
The procured loan will be channelled towards the construction of the world’s largest green energy park at Khavda, located in western India. This fund infusion brings the total investment in this environmental project since March 2021 to an impressive $3 billion.
The green energy park will host a hybrid energy project with a capacity of 17 gigawatts, an amount that is on par with Portugal’s total installed electricity capacity. Such an initiative aligns perfectly with Adani Green’s ambitious goal of achieving 45 gigawatt renewable capacity by 2030 and India’s commitment to becoming a net carbon zero nation by 2070.
Why It Matters: This latest financial backing for Adani Green not only sheds light on the company’s renewable energy plans but also underlines the increasing global interest and investment in India’s renewable energy sector.
