NTPC crosses the 2 GW renewable energy capacity

NTPC Group’s installed renewable energy capacity has crossed 2 GW with the commissioning of a floating solar photovoltaic (PV) project of 92 MW on the reservoir of Kayamkulam gas power station, at Alappuzha in Kerala.

The project would generate electricity from over 0.3 million solar PV modules. This would light around 26,000 households. Around 173,000 tons of CO2e would be avoided every year during the lifespan of the project. Further, more than 4 GW renewable energy capacity in 22 projects is under implementation while over 5 GW renewable energy capacity is under tendering. Besides, 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 in Gujarat, the work for green hydrogen blending with natural gas is currently under progress.
