‘Sterlite Power focused on integrating RE to the grid’
“Sterlite Power is increasingly focused on integrating renewable energy (RE) to the grid and has been awarded vital projects connecting the national grid to clean and green energy. The company has added several inter-state transmission system projects to its portfolio in 2019-20, including the Lakadia-Vadodara Transmission Project Ltd, which is part of India’s green energy corridor. The company also commissioned its first project in Brazil (Arcoverde) 28 months ahead of schedule, which was designed to evacuate renewable wind energy,” the statement said.
Through its unique asset monetisation strategy, the company has realised an additional liquidity of Rs 2,450 crore from the monetisation of three projects in India (NRSS 29, OGPTL and ENICL) and three projects in Brazil (Pampa, Arcoverde and Nova Estado), it added.
Sterlite Power Managing Director Pratik Agarwal said, “We are driven by our core purpose to enable access to reliable power while minimising the impact on climate change.” While noting that as the world makes rapid transition towards clean energy, India targets 450 GW of renewable energy by 2030, he said, “We will contribute towards this noble cause by creating the required transmission infrastructure so that green energy can reach the most underserved households.”
