Gujarat approves proposal for 41.5 GW hybrid renewable energy park in Kutch

The Gujarat state cabinet has approved a long-pending proposal for setting up a 41.5 GW renewable energy park in the Kutch district of Gujarat. The cabinet approved the revenue department’s proposal to allot 60,000 hectares of land for the project. The hybrid energy park project is one of the select projects of national importance that the prime minister reviews at his monthly PRAGATI (pro-active governance and timely implementation) session. The hybrid renewable energy park is projected to attract an investment of around Rs 1,350 billion. A committee of officials had earlier approved the land allocation plans for five major companies and forwarded the draft allocation plan for the state cabinet’s approval. These companies are SECI, NTPC, Gujarat Industries Power Company Limited, GSEC Limited, Adani Power and Suzlon, which are expected to get land for their 23,000 MW, 5,000 MW, 2,500 MW, 3,500 MW, 3,500 MW and 4,000 MW solar and wind power generation projects, respectively. The prime minister had given a deadline of 2022 for the completion of the project.
