Greentech Lead India: Soon after Mukesh Ambani’s revelations on Reliance Industries’focus on renewable energy, Tata has announced the registration of a major wind power project in Gujarat, India.The wind power project with a capacity of 50.4MW is located at Samana, Gujarat. It is being developed as part of the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) program of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)

The wind power project uses 63 wind turbine generators of 800KW capacity each to harness wind energy for power generation.

The Samana wind plant is the third CDM project from Tata Power. The other two CDM-registered projects include the 50.4MW wind project at Khandke, Maharashtra, and 25MW solar project at Mithapur, Gujarat, registered in June 2010 and January 2013 respectively.

The fourth wind project is in advanced stages of CDM registration with UNFCCC.

Samana is expected to generate 76,000 Certified Emission Reductions (CERs) per annum. It will also help in reducing the carbon dioxide equivalent of 96,821 tons (annual average) by producing clean energy equivalent to 104,970MWh per year (average).

Tata Power currently has 376MW of operating wind power generation capacity and 28MW of operating solar power generation capacity, making it one of the largest wind and solar power generators in India. Its subsidiary Tata Power Delhi Distribution has also commissioned a 1MW grid-connected rooftop solar plant in Delhi.

A 60.48KWP solar power plant has also been functional on top of one of the office buildings at Carnac Bunder, Mumbai. The company proposes to add 150-200MW of wind and 50MW of solar power capacity every year.
