India’s Adani Green Energy has operationalized 551 MW solar capacity in Khavda, Gujarat, by supplying power to the national grid.

Adani Green Energy (AGEL), India’s largest renewable energy (RE) company and the second largest solar PV developer in the world, achieved this milestone within 12 months of commencing work on the Khavda RE park.

Adani Green Energy plans to develop 30 GW of renewable energy capacity at this RE park. The planned capacity is expected to be operationalized in the next five years. When completed, the Khavda RE park will be the largest renewable energy installation in the world.

Energy from the Khavda RE park can power 16.1 million homes each year.

“Adani Green Energy is creating one of the world’s most extensive renewable energy ecosystems for solar and wind,” said Gautam Adani, Chairman, Adani Group.

Adani Green Energy currently has an operating renewable portfolio of over 9 GW, the largest in India, spread across 12 states. The company has set a target of achieving 45 GW by 2030 aligned to India’s decarbonization goals.

Khavda, located in the Kutch district of Gujarat, is a promising location for wind and solar energy projects. The region witnesses ~2,060 kWh/m2 of high solar irradiation, making it ideal for solar energy generation. It is also blessed with one of the best wind resources availability in India, with speeds of ~8 meters per second.

The company is deploying India’s largest onshore wind turbine generator of 5.2 MW capacity, bifacial solar PV modules, and horizontal single-axis tracker systems. It will be leveraging its Energy Network Operation Centre (ENOC) platform with AI/ ML integration to enable real-time automated monitoring.
