Adani Power to start exporting electricity from India to Bangladesh

Adani Power Limited plans to start exporting electricity from a coal-fired plant in Jharkhand, India to Bangladesh before the end of the year, helping to alleviate energy shortages in the South Asian nation.

The 1.6 GW Godda Power Project in Jharkhand and a dedicated transmission line will be commissioned for the exports by December 2022. Bangladesh remains heavily dependent on imported fossil fuels for electricity and has been suffering energy shortages as the price of fuels like gas and coal have surged following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
