India Wind Power Project

Location: India
This bundled renewable energy project is comprised of wind power plants across various states in India, all of which have traditionally be reliant on fossil fuel generated electricity.

Project Summary.

Approximately 70% of India’s electricity is generated by fossil fuels but now, particularly with offsetting projects like this one, wind is playing an increasing role in the generation mix.

In fact, the project plays a vital part in India’s shift towards a low carbon economy by generating electricity from wind power which is a completely renewable resource and supplying it to the state grid. This is also providing green jobs and helping to improve livelihoods for those families involved.

Aligning with the Sustainable Development Goals

SDG 7: Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable modern energy

This project aims to close the supply-demand energy gap that currently exists in India by generating electricity from a renewable source of energy.

SDG 8: Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth

The project provides opportunities for employment in the local communities, working in maintaining, operating and general running of the sites.

SDG13: Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts

The project raises awareness in the local areas of the impacts of climate change and plays an active role in its mitigation by shifting electricity generation away from non-renewable sources.

The results

  • Provision of jobs in local communities across India.
  • Improvement to the livelihoods of families employed by the projects.
  • Awareness raising among communities of the impacts of climate change and how to mitigate them.
  • Reducing the reliance on energy generation from fossil fuels and assisting communities across India to gain access to renewable and sustainable sources of electricity.
