Adani to start constructing solar plants next year
Indian energy giant Adani Group today announced its new venture for construction of two major solar projects in Australia next year as part of its efforts to develop renewable energy projects in the country with a total capacity of 1,500 MW within the next five years.
“Adani today announced that it proposes to commence construction of two major solar projects in Australia next year, each with an output of 100-200 MW,” a company statement issued here said.
The company’s head of Australian operations, Jeyakumar Janakaraj, said that these projects will offer a solid foundation to Adani’s renewable energy business in Australia and will contribute to meeting the country’s renewable energy target commitments.
“Coupled with the company’s 3.3 billion dollars of investment to date across its mine, rail and port projects in Queensland, Adani’s plans to pursue solar investment opportunities reflect the confidence the company has in the Australian market,” Janakaraj said.
