Indian PM to dedicate 5 NTPC RE projects to the nation

These include the two largest floating solar projects in India.

Indian Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi will dedicate to the nation five renewable energy projects of NTPC, India’s largest integrated energy producer, including the two largest floating solar projects in the country.

In a statement, NTPC said the 100-megawatt (MW) Ramagundam Floating Solar Project in Telangana and the 92MW Kayamkulam Floating Solar Project in Kerala were amongst those that will be dedicated to the nation.

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.
