ENGIE’s renewable capacity additions in India exceed 1.5 GW

The French multinational energy conglomerate ENGIE’s total renewable capacity in India has crossed 1.5 GW after Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam Limited (GUVNL) awarded a 280 MW solar project as part of the state’s Raghanesda solar park. GUVNL had auctioned 700 MW of solar capacity in which ENGIE emerged as the lowest bidder by quoting a tariff of Rs 2.65 per kWh to develop a capacity of 200 MW. The solar PV projects will be developed under Phase III of the Raghanesda solar park.
