Additionally, ACME Group signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with REC Limited, amounting to over R210 billion of loans for various projects, including a round-the-clock renewable power (RTC) of 380MW, phase 1 of two independent green ammonia projects in Indian states, and a 600MWhr Pumped Hydro Project.


The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was officially established at the 14th Clean Energy Ministerial and 8th Mission Innovation meeting held in Goa, India. ACME Group’s vice chairman, Shashi Shekhar, expressed excitement for the funding support and emphasized the company’s commitment to providing comprehensive green energy solutions.
