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

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) - Affordable and Clean Energy

SDG 7: Affordable And Clean 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.
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) - Decent Work and Economic Growth

SDG 8: Decent Work And Economic Growth

The project provides opportunities for employment in the local communities, working in maintaining, operating and general running of the sites.
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) - Climate Action

SDG 13: Climate Action

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 result

  • 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.
