Weeks before this declaration of the conglomerate company, Mukesh Ambani announced the contribution of investing $10 billion in hydrogen fuel and clean power generation for over a period of three years. He shared that hydrogen is possible to extract from renewable energy at $1 per kilogram. Since hydrogen does not emit carbon, it is safe to utilize it as a fuel in automobiles and other industries. 

On Tuesday, Adani dropped the curtains revealing the conglomerate’s green-vision by participating in a major contribution of $20 billion for producing renewable energy and green electrons.

Adani claims to stand out in the industry globally by constructing a large-scale portfolio based on renewable power generation. 

Adani Group has a total capacity of 12.3 GW in its solar power development, making it the world’s largest solar power developer as well as a combined capacity of 12, 450 MW in its power generation company. 

Today, we are already the world’s largest solar power player when we account for our generating, under construction, and contracted projects. We have done this in these two years and our renewable portfolio has reached our initial target of 25 Gigawatts a full four years ahead of schedule. This puts us well on track to be the world’s largest renewable power generating company by 2030,” said Adani.

He aims the company to be the largest producer of green hydrogen in the world. Furthermore, he shared that the company is conforming to its commitment which is backed by the fact that over 75 % of the sketched out capital expenditure until the year 2025 is going to be devoted to the advancement of green technologies. At present the company’s 43% of EBITDA arrives from the green portfolio of the business.

As reported by the PTI, the conglomerate group is planning on spurring the capacity of generating renewable energy in the coming 4 years from the current 21% to 63%. 

The company is expected to be the first establishment that is driving ahead of its scheduled target and is going to augment all of its data centres with renewable power by the year 2030. The group will also step its foot in new businesses and expand its reach and focus on other sectors including the backward section infrastructure sector. 

Within the past 8 years, the multinational company has managed to procure around 50 assets valuing $12 billion. In the coming decade, it will doubtlessly be on the list of the world’s top four countries relating to market capitalization. 

Commenting on the climate catastrophe, Adani said, “But, as if the pandemic were not enough, yet another challenge looms ahead of us and India will have to play a major balancing role. If the crisis in 2001 was the bursting of the dot-com bubble, and in 2007 the bursting of the housing bubble, and if in 2020 the crisis was the pandemic, we now have to collectively confront and manage the crisis of climate change.” 

Unlike the past times, where the climate reformers were burning a million tonnes of coal, our country presently contributes to about 3% of additional carbon composition present in the atmosphere, as informed by Adani. He said, A hundred years ago, today’s climate reformers were burning over 800 million metric tonnes of coal- that is more coal than what India produces today.”
