Suzlon Energy is primarily engaged in the business of manufacturing of wind turbine generators (‘WTGs’) and related components of various capacities.
Adani Green Energy, a part of Adani Group, has one of the largest global renewable portfolios with overall portfolio of 20.4 GW including operating, under-construction, awarded and assets under acquisition catering to investment-grade counterparties. The company develops, builds, owns, operates and maintains utility-scale grid-connected solar and wind farm projects.
To meet India’s 2030 target of 500 GW of renewable energy capacity, wind energy will have to contribute 140 GW, which is highly substantiated by the vast, untapped onshore and offshore wind resources. Across the country, the National Institute of Wind Energy (NIWE) has assessed more than 302 GW of onshore wind potential at 100-meter hub height and nearly 695.5 GW of onshore wind potential at 120-meter hub height.
In the next 20 years, India’s energy demand is anticipated to double. Combined with India’s Renewable Energy aspirations, this makes the nation one of the most attractive emerging markets for renewable energy investment, Suzlon Energy said in FY22 annual report.
