Modi will also lead the stone laying for three NTPC projects which are the 735MW Nokh Solar Project in Rajasthan, Green Hydrogen Mobility Project in Ladakh, and Green Hydrogen-Natural Gas Blending Project in Gujarat.
“The renewable projects will further reinforce government’s commitment towards achieving the target of 500 GW (gigawatts) of renewable capacity by 2030,” it said.
NTPC plans to reach over 60GW of renewable energy capacity by 2030, making up 50% of its overall total generation capacity. This is in line with India’s commitment to the UN Climate Change Conference at Glasgow, and its goal to achieve 500GW of non-fossil energy capacity by 2030.
