India’s leading energy utility, NTPC Group installed renewable energy (RE) capacity crosses 2 GW with commissioning of country’s largest floating solar PV project of 92 MW on the reservoir of Kayamkulam Gas Power Station, Alappuzha District, Kerala.
Spread over 480 acres of reservoir, this floating solar project would generate electricity from more than 3 lakh solar PV modules. This would be sufficient to light around 26,000 households. Around 1,73,000 tons of CO2e would be avoided every year during the lifespan of this project.
More than 4 GW RE capacity in 22 projects is under implementation while over 5 GW RE capacity is under tendering.
Work is under progress at Leh on integrated project for mobility where five buses would ply intracity using Green Hydrogen. At NTPC Kawas near Surat (Gujarat), the work for Green Hydrogen blending with Natural Gas (PNG) is currently under progress.
Earlier this month, A wholly-owned subsidiary of NTPC, NTPC Renewable Energy (NTPC Renewables) has issued a call for bids for a 500 MW STU-connected solar project in Bhadla, Rajasthan, for the balance of system (BoS) package, which excludes transmission system and land. The last date for proposal submissions is July 14, 2022.
